About this book


This important text provides an overview of community care policy in Britain outlining the recent reforms and their implications for users and carers and situating them in relation to historical and contemporary debates and developments in other European countries. The authors assess the changing roles of social services, health care professionals and housing agencies, and the growing importance of the European Community. The final chapter considers policy achievements and failures to date and the main challenges which remain to be addressed.
