This book looks at a number of charities in London between 1918 and 1979, and the ways in which they negotiated the growth of the welfare state and changes in the communities around them.These charities -- the "university settlements" -- were founded in the 1880’s and 1890’s and brought young graduates such as William Beveridge & Clement Attlee to deprived areas of cities to undertake social work. Bradley argues that whilst the settlements often had difficulties in sustaining their work with the vulnerable, they remained an important factor between the individual and the impacts of poverty.
