This book is about Social Services Departments in local authorities. It is concerned with establishing in realistic and precise terms the work that these Departments should be expected to carry out - what business they are in. It is concerned, too, with establishing what kinds of organization are necessary to carry out this work, taking into account such factors, as size, geographical dispersion, the availability of managerial and specialist skills, the need for professional freedom, the necessity for links with other related agencies, and so on.
