This text draws on feminist literature and research into community care policy and practice to provide an overview of the influence of, and attention to, gender. In documenting changes in social work and social care practice brought about by community care policies, it questions what understandings these provide of both "community" and "caring". It explores how policies have impacted differently on women and men as users of social work and community care services, and concludes with an examination of how the experiences of those providing and receiving care contribute to constructions of gender.
