Turning the tide report cover

Turning the Tide is our joint report produced alongside Action for Children and National Children’s Bureau. It finds there’s been Government cuts of £2.4 billion to funding for local children’s services. These cuts hit the most vulnerable young people hardest. Demand for crisis support is rising sharply as cuts force local councils to reduce early help services by 40% over five years.

The Good Childhood Report 2017

The Good Childhood Report 2017, produced in partnership with the University of York, is the sixth in a series of annual reports published by The Children’s Society about how children in the UK feel about their lives. The report examines the latest trends in well-being over time, explanations for gender patterns in well-being, and insights on how problems mount up to damage children’s well-being.

The report shows that one million teenagers have seven or more serious problems in their lives. At a time of drastic Government cuts to funding for local children’s services, the findings give us deep cause for concern.

Our spotlight papers look more closely at the lives of teenagers hit hardest by these devastating Government cuts. They uncover new evidence on how overwhelming problems damage children’s well-being.
