This title was first published in 2000: This book provides an exploration of the link between individualized project evaluation and policy analysis. The conceptual and legislative frameworks which contextualize family support are explored in full. By drawing on existing literature and examining the political and legislative aspects of family support the book aims to provide in one volume accessible and up to date information and discussion of key developments within family support, in the UK and internationally as well as within Northern Ireland where the research is set. Five family support settings are selected for close examination by the research and the key evaluation questions applied. The book details the methodology employed and explores exactly how the settings were organized for family support. Additionally the book seeks to identify needs in the context of family support across the range of settings by examining indicators of potential need. Services appropriate to family support were also analyzed across the range of settings. Finally the book reviews the settings against criteria for the evaluation and development of projects considered to be family support.

'This is presented as a book about research methodology and the difficulties of doing research. It gives other researchers enough detail to follow up and develop from their approach. It is potentially of equal significance for practitioners, however, as it is just as much about practice and the difficulties of doing practice.' Social Work Education
