Understanding Childhoods

A report from the Children's Society about growing up in hard times.

FORWARD: Edward Rudolf, The Children’s Society’s founder, was appalled by what he saw because of poverty’s damaging impact on children’s lives. He was determined to help vulnerable children and set up our organisation to promote social action. That was 136 years ago. Today, child poverty still blights children’s futures and it’s as important as ever to bring the issue to the fore. More importantly, still, we must listen to what children tell us about their lives so that, together, we can effectively tackle the problems facing children and young people today.
