One year ago the Department for Work and Pensions published the White Paper, "Social Justice: transforming lives" (Cm.8314, ISBN 9780101831420) which set out a new vision for supporting the most disadvantaged families and individuals across the UK. One year on, the Government believes achieving social justice requires a sweeping cultural change, spanning not only families and individuals, but also public services and the way the Government itself funds them. The publication consists of six chapters: Chapter 1: Supporting families; Chapter 2: Keeping young people on track; Chapter 3: The importance of work; Chapter 4: Supporting the most disadvantaged adults; Chapter 5: Delivering social justice; Chapter 6: Conclusion.
