Most contemporary British social policies have developed within an institutional and intellectual framework which is commonly referred to as the welfare state, and which first became firmly established in Britain after the second world war at the beginning of a period of historically high rates of economic growth. The embodiment of social policies within a particular set of public institutions required, and received, an increasing flow of resources to pursue the objectives set for them. For more than a quartercentury economic prosperity underwrote the expansion and consolidation of the modern welfare state. But since the mid1970s the deteriorating fiscal environment has affected nearly all public programmes and the welfare state has not escaped its share of the cuts. As a result there has been a growing feeling that a crisis of the welfare state is emerging.
