The idea for this book grew out of our interest in supporting the development of practice by examining the places and spaces of children and young people’s lives. It is evident to us that many practice interventions work with specific spaces and that some thinking used to explain aspects of contemporary policy and practice, including social exclusion, placement planning, transitions and globalisation, has a spatial dimension. We also note that youth and childhood are places, as in social positions temporarily occupied by each passing generation producing and produced by culture, identities and relationships. The design and delivery of services for children and young people in the UK can contribute (positively and negatively) to the process through which children and young people are assigned or stake a claim to these places.
