1.2.1 The Beveridge report

The architect of much of this reform in the field of social welfare was William Beveridge. His report entitled ‘Social Insurance and Allied Services’ was compiled as the war was at its height (Beveridge, 1942). In it Beveridge set out a plan to put an end to what he called the ‘five giants’ – Want (today we would call it poverty), Disease, Ignorance, Squalor and Idleness (unemployment). The centrepiece was a state-run system of compulsory insurance. Every worker, by contribut

1.6 All together now? Discussion

Views – whether from citizens or consumers – are diverse, although there are similarities within and between groups: for instance, on the need for respect. Diversity of opinion as well as diversity of need must be addressed by frontline managers. A few of the individuals and groups noted by our testers include: users of services for mental health, physical disability, older people, children and families; carers; workers; union representatives; managers; the general public; local and natio

2.6 Component 4: the social work process

The social work process comprises a sequence of actions or tasks which draw upon all of the components of practice discussed so far. The social work process rarely follows a clear linear route and is more often a fluid circular process whereby workers may move from assessment through to implementation and evaluation and back to assessment again. Despite this fluidity, some parts of the process, such as assessment, have clearly defined procedures guided by local or national policy. Some tasks

For example, the reading skill which you are using right now is a highly complex and sophisticated one which took years to develop to this level.

We use four categories of skill in our framework:

4.4 Observing play

Observing children's play offers an important way in which adults can monitor and assess children's progress.

Logging children's use of a particular activity or play scenario helps practitioners monitor how children use their time, their particular interests and any gaps in their experiences, so that practitioners can plan a balanced curriculum that takes note of children's strengths, interests and needs.
