Description

The Social Services Year Book 2002 is an invaluable reference source, providing contact details of all social services related organisations in the UK, both statutory and non-statutory. Containing Up-to-date accurate information Published annually since 1972, every entry within the Year Book is individually contacted to ensure all the information contained is accurate. Designed to be your one-stop guide to Social Service Provision in the UK, this useful reference source provides you with up-to-date details of over 50,000 key personnel and services within the social services sector.Improvements to the 2002 edition Our continuing aim is to make the Social Services Year Book as comprehensive and easy-to-use as possible. We have therefore implemented a number of changes to the 2002 edition which are designed to improve the way you retrieve and use the information contained: *75% of entries contain updated information This means that if you are using the 2001 edition of the Social Services Year Book then less than a quarter of its contents are now correct (even less if you are using an older edition).*
Even more useful web site addresses To help you find the information you need, this year's edition contains over 1,800 useful web site addresses including the Department of Health and various other government and charity organisations. *More valuable email addresses To ensure you can individually contact the person you need to speak to quickly and efficiently we have included email addresses of over 3,300 contacts. These addresses have been individually verified to ensure each address is accurate. *The effect of the re-organisation of central government To keep you up-to-date with the developments in central government, we have now restructured this section within the year book to reflect the re-organisation of departments in health, education and employment.C
