    Founded in the 1880s and 1890s, 'university settlements' such as Toynbee Hall and Lady Margaret Hall brought young graduates to work in deprived areas of east and south London - among them William Beveridge and Clement Attlee, the future architects of the Welfare State. This ground-breaking study explores the work of these bodies in healthcare, the prevention of juvenile delinquency, the care of ex-offenders, legal advice and anti-racism, and charts the complex relationship between charities, community and government.
