Making a difference: building on young people’s experiences of economic adversity

20 Aug 2012
Description

The Making a Difference Project was designed to explore the perceptions of children and young people (aged between 11 and 17 years) who experience economic adversity in order to understand what it means to them, how they experience exclusion in the family, at school, and in the communities where they live, and identify what services they think can make a difference.
 
The project adopted a rights perspective which emphasises the importance not only of listening to children, but of using their perspectives in making decisions on matters affecting them.
Authors: Jennifer Skattebol, Peter Saunders, Gerry Redmond, Megan Bedford and Bettina Cass.
