Cash and Care gathers reflective overview pieces and findings from new empirical research by a group of distinguished international experts. The study links the twin themes of cash-earnings from paid work, social security benefits, access to credit, direct payments to service users, etc.-and care within the broader contexts of disability, carework, and disadvantage, and locates these within recent social trends. By drawing on the latest research and policy developments, the book offers distinctive insights into the way in which the welfare state addresses the related issues of cash and care in a post-traditional society.
