Journal of Social Work
This book [provides] definitions, analysis of policy as it relates to different service user groups, and case studies of innovation and development. It also demonstrates the kinds of research questions that need to be asked and, above all, it unifies the idea of day services by harnessing it to policies for social inclusion.
Journal of Interprofessional Care
A valuable resource for all those who are taking stock and getting ready to move towards more inclusive, person-centred services
Research Policy and Planning
This is a well-written and valuable volume which does go some way towards addressing the huge gap in research based evidence for the provision of effective day services, and it will be of interest to many managers concerned with the commissioning and provision of these services.
