Abstract

Space and place are integral to our lives yet they are not one and the same thing: space is a measurable physical entity and place is a subjective and socially constructed perception. However, it is often the case that policy makers fail to recognise this distinction with the result that practitioners are sometimes placed in difficult and demanding situations. This paper explores the impact of space and place on youth workers and their clients in light of the Youth Matters documentation that suggests youth work becomes more centred in schools and school buildings.
