This book is concerned with the relationship between poverty and health - and in particular the health of those who experience it.
This has underlined the need for those who work with families to understand and respond more effectively to the health and welfare needs that poverty creates.
Whilst a rich source of research material on poverty and family health exists, it has not been readily available to health and welfare workers.
This book brings together this material and makes it accessible to those who are concerned about the health of families with young children.
Drawing on a wide range of disciplines it uses both'hard'and'soft'data in the acknowledgement that we need not only facts and figures but first hand accounts if we are to understand how poverty impacts on family health and family life.
Clare Blackburn is a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Applied Social Studies at the University of Warwick.
She is also a qualified and experienced nurse and health visitor.
