"Inside the Caring Services" provides an insider's view of the structure and organization of the caring services in the UK. The roles, functions and responsibilities of the main statutory bodies, plus those in the voluntary sector and private organizations, are examined in detail. This second edition has been radically rewritten in response to new legislation and developments with NVQ. The accessible style of the first edition has been maintained and a practical emphasis is provided by exercises and role plays drawn from recent practice.
