Contract management and community care: a negotiated process

Powell, Jackie (1999) Contract management and community care: a negotiated process British Journal of Social Work, 29, (6), pp. 861-875.

Record type: Article


Drawing on a wider study of community care arrangements for visually impaired people in England and Wales, this paper explores the implementation of contractual arrangements as part of the developing formalization of partnerships between local authority social services departments and voluntary organizations. It argues the importance of conceiving contract management as a complex set of social processes involving a diversity of interests and inequalities of power, where skills in negotiation are central to promoting greater participation in community care policy and practice. It concludes with a brief discussion of the relevance of social work to the implementation of this key area of contemporary community care arrangements.
