Emma Davidson and Lisa Whittaker, see young people as becoming the ‘new poor’ as they struggle to cope with increasingly precarious transitions into in (ter)dependent living. Care leavers across the UK continue to experience marginalisation and have poorer outcomes from educational performance and employment through to health and housing. They focus on the hardship of marginality within a specific group of young people, as care leavers who are vulnerable to service cuts associated with austerity in the UK. There approach is to develop narratives concerned with the importance of long-term, personal relationships whilst in care which emphasises the importance of establishing long term personal relationships whilst in care.
