Assessment 2 will test your ability to describe the practical implications of a di?erent social policy area using plain language, and your ability to ?nd and use additional evidence including personal narratives, or research papers with ?rst hand reports (quotes from service providers or users - reports and journal articles can be helpful for such evidence). Context: You have been invited to speak at an interagency meeting about how social policy impacts on the lives of people. This assessment is your written preparation for this presentation, in other words, you will be writing this as a speech so writing in the ?rst person is appropriate. The focus will be on engaging those attending the meeting about how social policy (current or proposed) impacts on the practices of actual people: social welfare service providers or people using social welfare services. Your opening paragraph of this speech will explain to the reader why the meeting has been called and who is attending the meeting (i.e. other agency/departmental representatives). This will be discussed further in tutorials.
