Weighing cost benefits against the cost to individuals

As the government continues to open up child protection and social work in England to a commercial market place, what is the social cost of privatising public services? What effect has the failure of previous privatisations had on their provision?

Join us for this talk and book launch by best-selling author and social worker, Ray Jones. He discusses these issues in his new book: In whose interest? The privatisation of child protection and social work. He examines the out-sourcing of crucial social work services and how this trend threatens the safety and wellbeing of vulnerable children and disabled adults.

Copies of Ray's book will be available for purchase on the night and Ray will be more than happy to sign copies at the end of his talk.
