Children's well-being and Covid-19

This report looks in depth at the impact of coronavirus (Covid-19) and the associated lockdown on young lives.

The charity’s annual survey of children’s wellbeing was completed by just over 2,000 young people and their parents between April and June. It found 18 per cent of children were dissatisfied with their lives overall. That is a marked increase in a figure that has ranged from 10 per cent to 13 per cent over the past five years, and the coronavirus crisis and lockdown is likely to explain the worrying surge.
