Placing adult day services within the whole spectrum of social provision and support, the contributors to this key text explore their complementary role alongside field social work, health care, domiciliary services and supported accommodation. Focusing on how to meet the diverse needs of service users rather than on the running of ‘day centres’, they highlight the importance of this sector in contributing to social inclusion.

The book is divided into two parts: the first looks at existing policy, including users’ feedback, and the second part outlines the practical applications of both theory and policy, illustrated with case studies. Adult Day Services and Social Inclusion examines services for people experiencing old age, learning disabilities, mental health problems or physical disability, and those socially excluded by unemployment, poverty, homelessness or crime. Policy makers, service managers, care workers and social care professionals in all sectors of adult health and social care will find this an essential guide to the provision of an effective day service.
