A 74-page literature review of what works in supporting children and young people to overcome persistent poverty. The  review was initially commissioned to explore the questions:

  • What works in supporting children and young people to break the intergenerational poverty cycle?
  • What factors and interventions might work to help poor children achieve a positive outcome in adulthood?
  • What factors enable some children born into poverty to ‘buck the trend’ in terms of their predicted life trajectories?
  • What strategies and practices can support the development of resilience among poor children and young people?
