Family life in areas of concentrated poverty and social problems is undermined by surrounding conditions. This timely book, by acclaimed author Anne Power and her team, is based on a unique longitudinal study of over 200 families interviewed annually over the last decade. It examines the initiatives introduced to help such families and the impacts on them, their future prospects and the implications for policy. Accessibly written and with clear data presentation, the book will have wide appeal to people who work with, live in and care about families, children and low-income areas.

An invaluable look at the lives of families in these challenging areas and a view from their perspective as to how well policies did or did not work. --Jane Waldfogel, School of Social Work, Columbia University, USA

Some people can't choose a nice area. So how do public services affect their lives? This insightful book shows, through the voices of the people themselves, just what a difference those services can make. --Prof Lord Layard, London School of Economics

Family Futures does a rare thing - it allows families to talk for themselves about their experiences raising children in poor neighbourhoods.As we embark on another era of major social policy change, policy makers, researchers and students alike would do well to listen to the voices so sensitively captured in this book and be reminded of the impact, possibilities and limits of social policies. --Katherine Rake, Family & Parenting Institute
