Summary of Key Points The last century saw the establishment of state welfare in Britain and the transformation of the country into a ‘welfare capitalist’ economy.Social policy provision extends beyond state welfare and is best described as a welfare mix.The development of social policy is affected by the political, ideological and economic contexts in which it is located.The impact of economic recession and the public sector deficit have led the government to plan for major changes to British social policy over the coming decade.Analysis of the future of social policy must balance contextual analysis with practical policy planning.
