A Single Door : Social Work with the Families of Disabled Children Hardback
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Children and Disability series
First published in 1986, this study explores the increased public concern with policies of `community care' and their effects on informal carers, at that time.
It looks at the widespread evidence that one particular group of informal carers- parents looking after their severely disabled child- lack information, advice and a co-ordinated pattern of supporting services.
The author, who carried out research on disabled children and their families for a number of years, describes in detail a low-cost experimental project in which specialist social workers set out to remedy these shortcomings.
Drawing on the results of this particular study, the author argues strongly for widespread assignment of `key' social workers to this and other groups of informal carers.
Despite being written in the mid-1980s, this book discusses topic that will still be of interest and use today.
