Abstract

The central concern of this volume is the emergence of ‘children’s voice’ and the implications of this for social policy. Taken together the contributing chapters provide the fresh perspectives on social policy that hearing the voice(s) of children promises to bring about. The volume is divided into four main themes: hearing children’s voices, discourses of childhood, children and services, and resources for children.
