Social care in the Four Nations of the UK - between two paradigms
Professor Catherine Needham (University of Birmingham)

In this talk, Professor Catherine Needham (University of Birmingham, School of Social Policy) presented findings from a new book Social Care in the UK’s Four Nations - Between Two Paradigms to explore differences between jurisdictions, and what impact the differences are having. 

Drawing on extensive interviews with national and local policy makers across the UK, the research raises vital questions about the role of ‘standardisation’ and ‘differentiation’ as approaches to solving the social care crisis.
