Title: Decentralising Social Services. A Model for Change
Description: London England, Bedford Square Press, 1984. 1st Paperback Edition, Binding: Soft Cover, Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 0719911249 Paperback Paperback. Old social service stamp to front cover. This book addresses the challenges facing the personal social services in the 1980s. There is an increasing trend to break away from the large-scale, bureaucratic organisations and adopt decentralised structures. The story focuses on the experience of East Sussex Social Services Department, the first authority in the country to implement this policy by giving responsibility for all its main services to locally-based teams. What do we mean by social care 'on the patch' and how does it work? What are the implications of a decentralised structure in relation to management, staff training and available resources? The East Sussex experience is evaluated with reference to eleven pratical neighbourhood projects, which are described and analysed by members of the project team. The authors also consider the significance of the new policy in a wider context, as a 'model for change' with direct relevance for other agencies. 166 pp.
