Family futures: Childhood and poverty in urban neighbourhoods

Family futures: Childhood and poverty in urban neighbourhoods

BOOK by Anne Power, Helen Willmot and Rosemary Davidson

Policy Press, July 2011

This book, published by the Policy Press, argues that family life in areas of concentrated poverty and social problems is undermined by surrounding conditions.

It is based on a longitudinal study of over 200 families interviewed annually over the last decade and examines the initiatives introduced to help such families and the impacts on them, their future prospects and the implications for policy.
