It explores how incorporating the perspectives of children and young people from low-income and disadvantaged families into policy and practice can lead to a greater understanding of childhood poverty and social exclusion. The chapter shows the things one can learn from listening to children, and stresses the importance of mediating factors in understanding the experiences of children. Policy recommendations and key issues that arose from the study are also addressed.
