This chapter looks at one of the biggest challenges in low-income areas — the shortage of open space, low-cost facilities and safe, well-supervised activities for children and young people. It notes that this is the highest priority for parents and of crucial importance to young people’s healthy development. It further notes that the Olympics Bid injected new hope that poor East London communities would secure these goals and families explain how this is playing out in practice. It reflects different views on what activities and spaces children and young people need and how those needs could be met.

Keywords:   low-income areas, children and young people, parents, Olympics Bid, East London communities
