Race and Ethnicity in a Welfare Society / Edition 1
Contemporary multiculturalism poses a number of challenges for the design and delivery of welfare services in Britain. This thought-provoking book explores the needs and well-being of ethnic minorities within the context of the changing framework for delivering welfare services. The book:
Considers major transformations in the delivery and practices of welfare related services and their implications for the engagement, access and participation of ethnic minorities
Reflects on issues of race and ethnicity within a variety of welfare policy arenas
Suggests ways that welfare practices could be transformed to incorporate the notion of a welfare society
Race and Ethnicity in a Welfare Society will appeal to students of social work, social policy and sociology and to practitioners with an interest in welfare policy and practice.
