Child welfare inequalities, such as the differential chance that a child is taken into out-of-home care or has a disadvantaged experience in care or after leaving care, are the key focus of this chapter (Bywaters, Child Welfare Inequalities Project Final Report. University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, 2020). It examines the role that neighbourhoods and communities play in mediating between structural inequalities and children’s life chances and reflects on the actual and potential role of child welfare services in this respect in England.
