Social policy – a help or a hindrance to social capital
This is one of the few which looks at the positive and negative impact social policy can have on the enhancement of social capital. It stems from a vast array of participative research and consultancy the authors have undertaken. It sets out the model of social capital developed from this work, which has enabled the discussion and application of social capital to move from academia into local neighbourhoods and communities. It has been referred to by a major network from the LSE and by IPPR North with a wide ranging audience of practitioners and policy makers.
