The Socially Excluded Adults PSA

The Socially Excluded Adults PSA As one of the Government's top 30 priorities, the Public Service Agreement on Socially Excluded Adults is an extremely powerful lever for improving the lives of some of the most disadvantaged in our society. But its easily understood aim ‐ ensuring a home and a job for the most at‐risk adults ‐ belies the complexity involved in making this PSA happen. From local area agreements to problems in gathering evidence about excluded groups, this article details the mechanisms involved, the obstacles to be overcome, and the benefits that the success of this PSA will bring. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Housing, Care and Support Emerald Publishing

Abstract

As one of the Government's top 30 priorities, the Public Service Agreement on Socially Excluded Adults is an extremely powerful lever for improving the lives of some of the most disadvantaged in our society. But its easily understood aim ‐ ensuring a home and a job for the most at‐risk adults ‐ belies the complexity involved in making this PSA happen. From local area agreements to problems in gathering evidence about excluded groups, this article details the mechanisms involved, the obstacles to be overcome, and the benefits that the success of this PSA will bring.
