This book is a very clear exposition of the techniques needed for preparing a plan and a budget in the social sector, and meets a significant gap in the literature for advanced undegraduate students in social policy and planning. It is being adopted as a key text for module SWP3171 Areas of social planning.
Did not contain the depth of information that I was looking for
Social workers often lack confidence in anything involving numbers and money! This is a very attractively presented book covering the essentials of its topic. It will be a valuable specialist addition for courses for more experienced social workers undertaking post qualifying studies.
Will be useful for those specialising in the economics of support planning or particularly interested in it.
Too focussed on budgets
An excellent book to help managers and senior social workers gain a working knowledge of the subject.
