Partnerships in Social Care is a practical handbook for professionals engaged in planning strategic partnerships in health, social care and education services.

The author proposes that service providers consider five key questions when setting up new partnerships:

* Is this partnership necessary?

* What is its purpose?

* Who is involved?

* Where will it function?

* How will it work?

Fletcher discusses the common problems of building successful partnerships - such as conflicts of interest and allocation of funding and resources - and offers guidance and practical tips on dealing with them. Designed as a quick reference, the book allows readers to find advice relevant to their particular situation or gain an overview of the themes explored.

This accessible and concise professional handbook is highly recommended for practitioners, managers and politicians, as well as all professionals working in, or considering working in partnerships in health, social care, housing, children's services, education, community development, justice and local services.
