This book explores policy and practice in a range of areas where education and other agencies (health, social and employment services and housing) interact. Its theme, of joined up policy and inter-agency working, is central to all those interested in promoting social justice for adults and children experiencing the effects of exclusion.

'The book is clearly current, but it will remain relevant to anyone with an interest in inter-agency working.' - Rob Watling, University of Leicester, Social Policy
'The authors of Education, Social Justice and Inter-Agency Working hope that this collection of papers leaves the reader with many questions to ponder.' It does, but it does more than that: it obliges the readers to decide which version of joined-up thinking they wish to practise.' - Paul Taylor, European Journal of Social Work
