AnnotationThis article argues that a recent Department of Health and Social Security (DHSS) circular which tries to shift the responsibility for investigating claims for supplementary benefits from residents and potential residents in voluntary residential care homes on to local authority social services departments is part of a dangerous trend, and that it is crucial that social workers resist pressures to treat financial needs as evidence of `social problems'.
