Future directions of welfare in Australia
MetadataShow full item record
Those of us involved in social welfare, either as service providers or as academic researchers, are concerned with the well-being of people in our community - with levels of living, with people's access to quality care, and informal social supports - in short with standards of life and living. Standards of life and living are dependent on three interconnected systems: a health economy; the overall social system that structures social and economic relationships; and the whole network of informal relationships and informal supports, i.e. family, friends, neighbours.
