The main issues addressed within this essay are; a brief history of when the concept deserving and undeserving poor first emerged, the deserving and underserving poor, informal carers and welfare provisions also evaluate three different issues which affect the delivery of social policies and practices which are; Rationing provisions via the eligibility criteria and the strengths and weaknesses of this. Multi agency working and the strengths and weakness, also will discuss the case of Victoria Climbie and Baby P. Lastly the personalisation agenda and the strengths and weakness of this and a conclusion. The 1942 report on Social Insurance and Allied Services, known commonly as the Beveridge Report was an influential document in the founding of the welfare state in the United Kingdom, Beveridge observed the lifestyles of the public and identified five "Giant Evils" in society: squalor, ignorance, want, idleness, and disease. In sight of this: public housing was introduced to combat squalor, state education to combat ignorance (1944 wartime National Government), National insurance to combat want, full employment to combat idleness and The National Health Service to combat disease. The outlook of these reforms were to help everyone but mainly introduced to help the less fortunate but members of society who were better off were not excluded from the benefits of the Beveridge report if they choose to use them. The Social Insurance and Allied services report was a fantastic starting point for a better United Kingdom but as time has progressed so has peoples wants and needs so in 2015 the 1942 does not stand for as much purpose as it did in 1942.

Informal care always involves a life change that is caused by a family member's disability or illness. Informal care affects all members of the entire family instead of being a lifestyle supported by the carer and care receiver.
