Clare in the Community is a British comic strip in The Guardian newspaper, written by Harry Venning. The title is a play on words relating to care in the community. The strip has been successfully adapted for radio on BBC Radio 4, starring Sally Phillips as Clare.
Clare is a social worker with all the right jargon who likes to sort out other people’s problems while ignoring her own. She is white, middle class and heterosexual – but doesn’t like to be reminded of it. She is a control freak but both her personal and professional lives are out of control.
