It is essential for social work students to know about social policy, to know why studying social policy is important in the social work degree, and to understand how social policy, when implemented, has a real impact on the everyday life of vulnerable people. This book provides plenty of examples of this impact, tracing the development of welfare provision for older people right through the twentieth century, leading up to an analysis of contemporary developments, which students will need to know about in order to practice effectively.

Review:

This is a long awaited book which contextualises developments in services and policy regarding older people in history, politics and issues regarding definition of the 'community'. First rate. --Lecturer, Teesside University

Fantastic book as it deals effectively with three huge topics that are inextricably linked to be relevant to both practitioners and academics. Well laid out, high level of clarity that almost felt that I should read it as a small novel from beginning to end. Excellent. --Lecturer, Keele University

An excellent text which will definitely be on the reading list. --Lecturer, University of Sheffield

About the Author:

Robert Johns has over twenty five years' experience of statutory social work across the full range: youth justice, mental health, disability, vulnerable adults and as a children's guardian. A deep commitment to social justice and unease about social workers' legal knowledge led him to teaching and researching in this area. He has taught applied social work law in higher education since 1986 on both professional qualifying and post-qualifying courses.
