How has interagency working impacted on the support that disabled people and their families receive? Can partnership working pave the way for more personalized, mainstream services? Renowned authors Sally French and John Swain provide a critical review of the contemporary health and social care landscape from the perspective of disabled service users. Using the highly influential social model of disability as their framework, they explore the barriers that deny disabled people full participation in society, and identify the issues for practitioners and policymakers. Incorporating the views and experiences of disabled people throughout, the book addresses: ■ How effective practice can be shaped by service users' own accounts of their experiences, both positive and negative ■ The structural and environmental inequalities that block opportunities to influence future policy ■ The roles of key professionals in shaping the support that disabled people receive Timely and agenda-setting, this book constructs a new vision for partnership-led practice in the field, with the implications for policy and practice clearly laid out. As such, it is essential reading for students and practitioners working with disabled people and their families, across all fields of health and social care, including social work, nursing, education and community work.

In recent years the concept of ‘diversity’ has gained a leading place in academic thought, business practice and public policy worldwide. Although variously used, ‘diversity’ tends to refer to patterns of social difference in terms of certain key categories. Today the foremost categories shaping discourses and policies of diversity include race, ethnicity, religion, gender, disability, sexuality and age; further important notions include class, language, locality, lifestyle and legal status. The Routledge Handbook of Diversity Studies will examine a range of such concepts along with historical and contemporary cases concerning social and political dynamics surrounding them. With contributions by experts spanning Sociology, Anthropology, Political Science, History and Geography, the Handbook will be a key resource for students, social scientists and professionals. It will represent a landmark volume within a field that has become, and will continue to be, one of the most significant global topics of concern throughout the twenty-first century.
