Summary
"Some of the latest policy initiatives to tackle social problems in a number of countries have targeted vulnerable communities as well as high-risk families. For instance, there are currently over twenty area-based initiatives in the UK. There has also been increasing emphasis on encouraging children to take an active role in shaping their communities. This book discusses some of these important initiatives, as well as providing a topical examination of the latest research and the implications for policy and practice."--BOOK JACKET
