This timely new study, by three leading experts in the field, sets out first to investigate the demographics of lone motherhood - how the pathways into lone motherhood have changed, and whether the changes of the last quarter of a century are as dramatic as they appear. Second, it looks at the wider context for the changes in lone motherhood in terms of ideas about ma
Should we worry about family change? by Jane Lewis( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Should We Worry about Family Change? unpacks the current controversies and larger issues surrounding family change. Some of the topics discussed include the nature of family change, its impact on the lives of women, and the need for amendment to our social policies and laws to reflect today's diverse family patterns. Taking into account the historical development of the family and the social policies that have attempted to meet familial concerns, Jane Lewis comments on such pivotal topics as absent fathers, the increasing economic independence of women, and the effects of the rise of cohabitation." "Lewis explores various policy options that have the potential to promote family well-being and responsibility while expanding the choices available to men and women in regard to their contributions to family life. Drawing on a wide range of literature, cross-national data, and policy approaches, Lewis engages her readers in a highly public and timely debate."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Implementing the new community care by Jane Lewis( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What were the aims of the new community care policy? How has the policy been implemented? How far have the aims of the policy been achieved? These are just some of the questions addressed by the authors of this book. They trace the implementation of the 1990 community care legislation in five local authorities between 1992 and 1994. The book suggests that central government's main aim was to bring social security spending under control. Services issues were always secondary. Nevertheless, implications both for clients and services have been important and often unintended. Local authorities have faced considerable difficulties in implementing the legislation. The process is followed in five local authorities, one county and four London boroughs. Local authorities were faced with a mass of central government guidance and a number of key changes to make. It traces three changes in detail: the implementation of the purchaser/provider split and the creation of a social care market, the introduction of care management, and efforts to collaborate with health authorities. The book compares how the authorities tackled these issues and examined why they approached the tasks so differently. It also analyses the way in which social services departments have changed in the process and the extent to which we are seeing the end of the 'Seebohm' Departments. Implementing the New Community Care will be of interest to students of social policy, health and social welfare and social work
