  1. The informal sector of welfare : a crisis in caring ?

    Article - En anglais

    The informal sector is the major provider of informal care for dependent people and everyday care for able-bodied people in Britain.

    A large and complex sector of care, it has come to occupy a central place in British government policies for health and welfare.

    Through the 1980s, the informal sector was increasingly identified as a solution to problems in the formal systems of care.

    The paper reviews the concept of informal care and the welfare philosophies which informed the development of these policies, arguing for a broader and more critical perspective which locates informal care within the context of the wider caring work that goes on in households.
