‘Social welfare’ refers to “organized public or private social services for the assistance of disadvantaged groups”. The social welfare system of each country varies greatly, with the UK pioneering the welfare state in 1946, leading to public services such as the National Health Service, social housing, social security, and free education.
‘Social services’ are those activities offered within a welfare system, provided by the government or local authority to promote wellbeing. These often relate to children’s services, but can also be services such as those for the elderly, and those with disabilities.
