P. Cambridge and A. Ernst

European Journal of Social Work, vol.9, 2006, p.279-303

This paper outlines the methodology and findings of a cross-national comparison of social care services for people with learning disabilities in Europe, developed from the EU-funded STEPS anti-discrimination project. The comparative framework developed for the project is profiled and summary findings are organised into thematic groups. Wide variations in service organisation were evident, providing challenges to those involved in cross-national research or social work practice.
