The book is amazing. It summaries all of the laws as it says on the cover. It gives you an introduction, and I found it helpful to focus my reading.
The book is well written and easy to understand in terms of content and application due to how it was laid out, it also was helpful in terms of the wording and explanations around this when you are new to the Social Work field. This book provided me with insight into legislation around Social Work practice and how it is implemented. It gave me understanding in how to link legislation with thresholds as directed in the Children Act.
Haven’t been able to access this fully due to. It realising it was an electronic copy and issued with Vital Source. Nice enough text, basic but covers some key topics especially in regard to topical issues and safeguarding. Really useful for reference and introducing some core aspects of social care and law; I’ve recommended this book to students and will be referring back to it regularly myself.
Work use this book again. I teach law and it is great
This book is one of the core textbooks for my course. It gives them and understanding and knowledge that is required on the course
A handy resource, giving students readily understandable information about key legislation. The context is helpful too, such as the different aspects of Child and Family legislation.
