This chapter gathers up parents’ views on the changes in their neighbourhood resulting from government efforts, changes at the community level and how these changes had affected their families. It notes that parents’ views are not always consistent, and the 200 families express a wide range of opinions, varying not just between North and South, inner and outer areas, but also between different types of families with different individual experiences. It presents an overview of how changes have affected families, whether outcomes are positive, negative or mixed, and what remains to be done. It ends by summarising the findings on each main theme of the book highlighting the remaining gaps and discontinuities that threaten to undermine progress.

Keywords:   parents’ views, changes at community level, families, North and South, inner and outer areas, discontinuities
