About this book

The conception of welfare services has changed to consider the more specialized needs of individual users or consumers. This book examines the contradictions and complexities of contemporary individualized welfare services, with special reference to service groups who are deeply dependent on service delivery for their quality of life

Reviews

'Individualization and the Delivery of Welfare Services is a welcome addition to a new collection of literature that articulates the case for the centrality of personhood in health, social and welfare services. Whilst the welfare state obviously has the welfare of individuals as its raison d'être, sometimes personhood can appear to be lost in machinations about who provides what, when and how. It is therefore exciting that this book provides a window from which to reframe the place of the individual and their interconnected relationship with the state.' - Professor Brendan McCormack, University of Ulster, UK
