This chapter evaluates the extent, nature and consequences of poverty in relation to young people in urban settings. It focuses on two concentrated poverty areas in Liverpool — Dingle and Speke. The chapter examines the conceptualisations of disadvantaged and excluded youth in relation to their neighbourhoods and their perspectives on area-based regeneration initiatives. Finally, the chapter assesses the impact of state policy on youth poverty and considers the potential for youth participation within area-based regeneration.
