Abstract [sv]

Barnfattigdom är ett aktuellt problem i världen och även i Sverige. Just här har rapporter och forskning visat trender om ökande antal barn som lever fattigt. I städerna Stockholm, Göteborg och Malmö har även forskning bedrivits för att kartlägga situationen i utsatta stadsdelar. I Uppsala har sådan forskning inte genomförts och Rädda barnens lokalavdelning i Uppsala har yttrat ett behov av sådan information från utsatta stadsdelar i Uppsala. Syftet med studien var att kartlägga situationen i Gränby stadsdel i Uppsala och samtidigt skildra situationen gällande fritidsverksamhet i Gränby. Detta gjordes med dels fältobservationer men mest med en kvalitativ metod med intervjuer. Tre respondenter intervjuades som har olika kopplingar till fritidsverksamheten i stadsdelen och deras skildring presenterades i studien. Resultaten och analysen visar att fritidsverksamheten i Gränby stadsdel är begränsad till Gränby fritidsgårds utbud och att andra organisationer inte lyckats etablera sig fullt för att kunna erbjuda barnen i stadsdelen fritidsaktiviteter. Vidare framlades det att eventuella satsningar på fritidsverksamheten på fritidsgården bör läggas på personal och dess kompetens istället för fler aktiviteter då det redan finns ett tillräckligt utbud enligt respondenterna. En brist i kommunikation mellan personal på lokal nivå och ansvariga politiker framfördes även det. Ett behov kring ungdomsinflytande vid anställning av personal och en brygga i kommunikation mellan personal och politiker angavs också av respondenterna. Vidare forskning bör fokusera sitt urval till även barn som är med i fritidsverksamheten för att ta del av deras berättelser.

Abstract [en]

Child poverty is a current issue in the world and also in Sweden. Reports and research conducted in Sweden have shown trends which indicate that more children are living in poverty here. In the cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo research has been conducted in troubled neighborhoods of the cities to depict the situation in the area. Such research has not been conducted of neighborhoods in Uppsala and Save the Children’s local branch in Uppsala has shown a need of such information from troubled neighborhoods in Uppsala. The purpose of this study was to map the situation in the neighborhood Gränby in Uppsala and at the same time depict the situation regarding leisure activities in Gränby. This was done by field studies and a qualitative method with interviews. Three respondents were interviewed because of their different connections to leisure activities in the neighborhood and their view of the situation was presented in the study. The result and the analysis show that leisure activities in Gränby are limited to Gränby youth center’s (“Gränby fritidsgård”) range of activities and that other organizations haven’t succeeded in establishing themselves to be able to offer the children in the neighborhood any additional leisure activities. Furthermore, any potential efforts to improve leisure activities at Gränby fritidsgård should be focused on the staff and to develop their competency instead of more activities since there already is a sufficient range of activities according to the respondents. A lack of communication between staff on a local level and responsible politicians was brought to light. A need regarding the youths’ influence regarding hiring of staff and a bridging of communication between staff and politicians was also voiced by respondents. Further research should focus their selection to the children in the area who are involved in leisure activities to take part of their stories.
