Household support takes place in users’ homes and neighbourhoods. User participation is basic in developing support services, which meet the needs of users with mental health and/or addiction challenges. Decisions made in collaboration with social work practitioners from the Norwegian municipal social services, have to target the users’ life-situations. The aim of this article is to explore how practitioners experience user participation. The article is based on a part of a big research project, practicing user participation and the Task-Centred Coping Approach. Twenty-five practitioners from the MSS in Norway participated in focus-group interviews. The results were summarized into four themes: practitioners’ understanding of user participation, users’ personal and environmental resources, users’ motivation for household support and users’ goals.
