At a time of renewed concern about health, social care, and national unity, the authors reassert the value of the Welfare State for society as a whole, not simply for those in need. Years of relentless regulatory and structural reforms have not prevented scandals, yet have exhausted, demoralised and alienated staff. The work we ask these people to undertake is hard. It can be frightening, risky and uncertain. It requires close attention, sensitivity, skill and support. Grounded in lived experience, and perspectives drawn from many disciplines, Intelligent Kindness illuminates how to develop and sustain healthy organisational culture and effective, humane practice.
