Considering the Countryside: Is There a Case for Rural Social Work?

Show Summary Details

Preview

Most British social work literature is written with the implicit assumption of an urban context, but large numbers of people still live in comparatively rural settings. Rural social work remains a largely unrecognized dimension of practice, receiving little attention beyond the reportage of individual projects or initiatives. This paper considers whether it is a sufficiently distinctive area of practice to warrant specific consideration. It concludes that it is an under‐researched aspect of practice within the UK which merits particular attention and identifies some areas for future development.
