This paper reviews four texts that address connectedness in social relationships. It
considers concepts of care and social capital and how these are applied in policy and
practice. It argues the importance of understandings deriving from these concepts in
developing policies that support well-being, reflect the significance of moral decision
making and enable the development of supportive networks. (Author’s abstract).
