Social work and poverty: A critical approach provides a timely review of the key issues facing social workers and service users in working together to combat poverty. It firstly situates social work and poverty within a historical context and then analyses definitions and theories of poverty along with their importance in enabling anti-oppressive practice with service users. It then goes on to evaluate The Welfare Reform Act 2012 in relation to the negative impact it will have on service users and social workers alike. Key areas of social work and social care are covered in relation to the impact of poverty including, uniquely, access to food, obesity and problematic drug use. Finally the impact of globalisation upon social work and issues of poverty are explored. The book will be of interest to students, researchers and academics in social work and policymakers working in related areas.
