Through this course you will increase your awareness of the extent to which social policy affects all of us in our everyday personal and working lives.

It builds on your knowledge by considering substantive areas of social policy, in particular policies on health, community care and housing, and encourages you to think more broadly about the interrelationships between different aspects of social policy and the range of providers of welfare in society.

Some of the major debates in social policy will be introduced and considered, as will the various political perspectives that have informed social policy developments. Finally, the implications of these debates for health and social care professionals, particularly in terms of their role in the definition of need and its implications for dependency, is considered.
