This qualitative report explores the views of young people living in poor communities across the North East.

The views were captured at an ippr north event Your Shout in Sunderland which enabled young people to discuss the issues affecting their lives and their aspirations. The report, supported by Save the Children Fund and Government Office North East to feed into the North East Child Poverty Strategy Group, sets out the young people's views on family life, where they live, adult attitudes to young people and the issues that concern them most for their future.
