Reducing child poverty has been a policy of successive United Kingdom (UK) governments. However, the reduction of persistent poverty has only recently featured on the policy agenda. This article uses longitudinal data on early childhood to examine developmental contexts and outcomes of persistently poor children and to establish contexts that may promote resilience. Results show that persistently poor children have more disadvantageous developmental contexts than children in poverty for shorter periods and that they have worse developmental outcomes. Resilience may be promoted by improving parenting behaviours and attitudes and improving maternal mental health.
