Communities and Caring The Mixed Economy of Welfare by Marjorie Mayo

Communities and Caring The Mixed Economy of Welfare


Communities and Caring The Mixed Economy of Welfare by Marjorie Mayo

Communities and Caring explores the theoretical background of social policy debates around the mixed economy of welfare in relation to community participation and community development. Whilst providing a critical analysis of New Right Theories, the book explores alternative approaches based on increasing accountability and democratic pluralism, within the framework of active community participation. Drawing upon different experiences both in Europe (including Eastern, as well as Western Europe), in the United States and in the Third World, Marjorie Mayo emphasises the importance of continuing public sector support and resources for community participation and development; without such underlying public sector support, community participation will be unable to meet community needs.


'In this careful study, Marjorie Mayo considers the implications for community care, community development and community participation.' - Bob Holman, author of A New Deal for Social Welfare'
