(p.101) 5 Men’s caring arrangements and family trajectories
Fathering and Poverty

Policy Press

This chapter presents analyses of men’s accounts of their family participation and family trajectories. It explores the questions of how and in which ways men participate in their families in low-income contexts and foregrounds their caring arrangements and family configurations. The diverse and divergent sets of caring arrangements described by men in different generational positions are considered, drawing on empirical examples across the cases. The findings in this chapter demonstrate how caring arrangements in low-income families are both negotiated and contested over time. This includes across familial generations, between men and women, and often in engagements with services and agencies external to families.

Keywords:   Caring arrangements, family trajectories, kinship care, lone fathers, young fathers
