Type of paper: Refereed paper

This study consulted 38 children aged 5 to 12 years at four schools in disadvantaged eastern suburbs of Salisbury, South Australia. It explored children's awareness of resources and supports available to them and their families. It sought information from them about the community resources they and their families currently use, those they would like to have access to, and their ideas about what would facilitate access to these resources, and what would improve their lives and communities.
