- Reviewing research on housing and social work and drawing out its implications for policy and practice, this volume emphasizes the relationship between the two services. For example, the amount and condition of housing stock, costs and planning permission can result in a housing shortage, with the consequences of which social workers have to deal. It is also argued that there is a connection between social work assessments and housing allocation policies. The papers examine urban and rural housing and poverty, homelessness among young people and women, and the effect of culture on family and tenure patterns. The findings of the text propose a closer relationship between housing and social work services, and a better integration of housing and care plans.
