The Younghusband report was published in 1959 and was a significant turning point in the organisation of social work. It was based on the North American model where community organisation was a key component of social work. It was aimed at helping people in local communities to identify their own social needs and determine the most effective means of meeting those. Prior to this there were separate groups of workers in this area but following the report social work emerged as an occupation for trained professionals.
