The Short Guide to Social Policy is an essential introductory textbook for students of Social Policy or Applied Social Science. Written by experienced authors and teachers, the textbook explores the five pillars of welfare; social security, employment, education, health and housing, and this new edition adds a further chapter providing an overview of other fields such as criminal justice, social care and family policy.
The book is now supplemented by this unique and innovative digital app, which is free to download and use with the book. The app includes short videos with commentary, interactive charts and ‘unboxed’ examples that expand key issues raised in the textbook, enabling students to engage more deeply with statistical information and key concepts.
Interactive content in the app is accessed through the use of QR codes placed in the pages of The Short Guide to Social Policy book itself. Whenever you see interactive content in The Short Guide to Social Policy book you can trigger the additional app content from your smart phone or tablet using the QR Code scanner in the app. Once a piece of interactive content has been unlocked through scanning the relevant QR code you can access it directly through the app without having to scan the QR code again.
