This third edition of the leading textbook on personalization in social welfare payment systems in the United Kingdom brings the analysis wholly up to date, taking into account the major changes enacted by the Coalition Government since 2009 and pointing the way to the likely future, when all social welfare payments and support will be delivered directly, via a personal budget. This close examination of the theory and practice will be essential to scholars, policy makers, and practitioners.
