The aim of this study is to describe and analyze the relationship between the local political government and guidelines regarding financial assistance in the two Swedish municipalities Umeå and Nacka. Earlier studies have focused on social workers’ own experience of the political influence on their work, and have shown that there are differences between which political parties that have majority in the local government. In our study we have focused on the way guidelines and steering documents have been formulated, and if there are differences between the municipalities with different political parties in majority. To perform our study we have used an ideal analysis as our method. We created two ideal types based on the political ideologies of the leading political party in each municipality. For Umeå we created an ideal type for left-wing party Socialdemokraterna, and for Nacka we created an ideal type for right-wing party Moderaterna. The study showed that there are differences between the guidelines and how they are formulated, and these differences can be connected to the political party that is in majority in the local government. The conclusion is that there are major differences in the guidelines regarding financial assistance between the municipalities. The local political government therefore has a big influence on the formation of social work in the municipalities.
