This chapter, alongside the previous one by Christine Skinner, aims to provide a wider context for the remainder of the book. Skinner has already outlined the current policy context in which social workers are operating, and we situate these developments in some competing theoretical explanations about the ‘changes’ occurring in contemporary UK households. We also aim to complement the policy perspective by locating developments in the context of family and demographic change.
