Working-Class Housing in England between the Wars

Andrzej Olechnowicz

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses and examines the work of the National Council of Social Services. It was formed in 1919 and was considered to be the most prominent inter-war voluntary organization. Aside from advancing a vision of ‘community’ for those estates based on community centres and associations, the NECC also helped build the idea that council estates had flaws and were dangerous. The NECC also unintentionally contributed to an anti-working-class opinion that partly legitimized anti-working-class politics between the Wars.

Keywords:   National Council of Social Services, inter-war, voluntary organization, community, anti-working-class, politics, opinion
