Social Policy seeks to not only understand the social world, but seeks to change it for the better through practical action. Human well-being can be delivered through a range of public, private and voluntary institutions.Welfare systems and other public institutions face considerable challenges presented by economic crisis such as an ageing population, increasingly flexible forms of work, migration, and shifting ways of family life. Alongside these fiscal and demographic pressures, rising socio-economic inequality and austerity has begun to reverse a number of key social advancements in terms of health and social mobility, making it a fascinating and critical time to study these issues.
