It is also a task that requires social administration to come to terms with the various explanatory theories and models concerned with social structures and processes. Following on from Titmuss and Rein, then, we could argue that social policy as a discipline had two major areas of concern. g. social justice and equality, liberty, community.

The situation is changing, however, and it appears that from being a mere academic icing on the reformist and administrative cake, the study of social welfare is in the process of developing into an intellectual discipline.
