Care, community and citizenship

Policy Press

This chapter explores the extent to which policy and practice in Scotland in the key areas of care, citizenship, and community contrasts with that presented for the rest of the UK. It examines the extent to which there is evidence for difference, both before and after devolution. The chapter suggests that a succession of shifts can be identified: from a privileging of community interests evident across social welfare, housing, and community regeneration to a greater emphasis currently on partnership working, and from a concept of communal benefit to individual personalisation.

Keywords:   community care policy, social welfare, housing, personalisation
