Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter considers the spatial location of public services and how spatial location difficulties can be amplified when multiagency policies and multidisciplinary teams are established. It discusses the relationship of space with welfare services and rejects the Marxist notion that human space is entirely defined by capitalism, social life and social relations. It provides a salutary reminder that spatial location and spatial operations are a crucial aspect of partnership working and have a major impact on multiagency and multidisciplinary service development.

Keywords: spatial location; public services; multiagency policies; welfare services; capitalism; partnership working
