While relationships are central to a child and youth care approach to practice, the claims we make for them as defining the field cannot stop at an inter-personal level but need to consider their nature and purpose in wider context. In this chapter, I locate the idea of relationship within the debate in social theory around the relative merits of demands for recognition and redistribution. I go on to attempt to bridge these respective claims by advancing the need for affective or relational equality in enabling children and youth to take their place(s) in the world.
