In this chapter, we will examine the role of social work within our society, and locate the historical development of social work within broader social, political and economic frameworks. The role of social work as a professional activity can be considered as contingent on the overarching historical, political and economic periods it is located within, and it is from this perspective that we will explore the historical development of social work within the UK.
