The Service Hub Concept in Human Services Planning examines how the concept of a 'service hub' could assist in the delivery of human services. The monograph covers the problematic of human services planning, including difficulties associated with effective client assessment and assignment; overcoming the opposition sentiments that commonly block human services provision; and questions associated with socio-spatial justice.

The book also tackles the service hub concept and service hubs in practice. The bases for community opposition to human service facilities; fair-share approach to service provision; and the impact of difference and social justice in human services planning are also described.

Geographers and those involved in urban and regional planning will find the monograph invaluable.
