Abstract/Description

This study explores why
disadvantaged parents
move into poverty and
identifies the specific
barriers to them escaping
the cycle of low pay/no
pay or recurrent poverty. It
draws on information from
interviews with parents
and focus groups with
professionals, plus some
analysis of an existing
large survey.
