About this book

Introduction

This book stresses the importance of local politics for social workers and argues that the relationships between workers and politicians are rarely as extensive or as positive as they might be. The authors offer practical advice for improving the links between social workers, councillors and social service users and explore the issues raised by closer collaboration.
