Commissioned to celebrate the centenary of
the Birmingham Settlement, Poverty and Opportunity is a detailed social history
not only of the work of the Settlement but also of life in Birmingham's inner
city. Founded on 29th September 1899, the settlement is a voluntary social
agency serving the local community from its base on Summer Lane Newtown, but
with a national and even an international reputation in some areas of its work.
In 1999, it was the largest and one of the best known British Settlements in what
has become one of the most enduring social movements of the twentieth century.
"This is an inspiring book about a proud organisation which, as the author points out, is well placed to take a leading role in welfare provision at the beginning of the 21st Century."
