This chapter examines the role of providence, paternalism, and philanthropy in the relations between citizen, state, and social welfare in Great Britain during the period from 1830 to 1880. During this period, voluntarism became increasingly open to a series of economic, political, and social challenges which raised doubts on whether it can bear the main weight of the mixed economy. The complementary role of localized state also came under scrutiny, which emphasized the need to devise a new formula for the mixed economy.

Keywords:   social welfare, Great Britain, providence, paternalism, philanthropy, mixed economy, voluntarism, localized state
