AnnotationThis report looks at the concept and the practice of agency services. It does not suggest that agency services are a universally appropriate device for achieving home improvement. Local circumstances vary, and this is reflected in the variety of agencies covered by the twelve case studies. For the same reason, the report cannot propose a `model' agency service. What it does is to set out the arguments surrounding the objectives and performance of agency services, to assist in debates about their appropriateness for particular circumstances. (RH).
