Improving Health and Welfare Work with Families in Poverty
This training handbook is designed for teams of health and welfare practitioners who work with families with dependent children: health visitors, community nurses, social workers, nursery workers, community workers and other community based workers from the statutory and voluntary sectors. It is written for fieldworkers who want to place poverty on the central agenda of fieldwork practice by examining the issue, and what it means for collective and individual practice. This is a resource for teams rather than for trainers, and is written for use by teams within their own bases. It provides key information, sets of guidelines and activities to enable workers to move together through the process of learning and planning in the area of family poverty and poor health.
