This chapter explores local community relations and the ways in which families create social networks to secure a foothold in areas that otherwise might seem too harsh to survive in. It then looks theme by theme at each aspect of area-based social exclusion and concentrated disadvantage as it affects the families in the following sequence: community links and community activity; schools and educations; facilities and activities for young people; community safety and crime prevention; health and well-being both mental and physical; work, tax credits, training and benefits, housing and regeneration; and how conditions changed.

Keywords:   local community relations, social networks, area-based social exclusion
