This site provides a permanent archival record of the Social Policy Digest, a major web-based resource on UK social policy issues maintained from May 2002 to September 2014.
The Social Policy Digest was developed and maintained as a companion to two journals – the Journal of Social Policy and Social Policy and Society – both of which are published in association with the Social Policy Association by Cambridge University Press. It was designed as a key resource for all those working in UK social policy – policy-makers, researchers, teachers and students, campaigners, journalists, and practitioners.
The Digest is no longer updated.
