2 Location and life chances for families

Life chances and location can have a major impact on the organisation of family life. You will first of all explore what is meant by life chances. Then you will consider how life chances are connected to housing and to the place in which people live. This involves looking at how places differ from one another, how they reflect diversity and how they can reinforce inequalities.
