The Social Policy Evaluation and Research Unit (SUPERU) has released Integrated Social Services for Vulnerable People, as part of its What Works series.

The paper brings together information on the effectiveness of integrated social services, including what is known about how, when, and for whom integrated social services are most effective.

NZCCSS will be taking a close look at this paper and will provide comments in the next Policy Watch edition.
