Attitude Survey #

Societal attitudes and culture are pivotal to the development of wellbeing of children. However, this important part of the picture is frequently missing from discussions and is not well captured in research. Understanding adult attitudes towards children is essential as these attitudes influence how children are treated, the priority given to their needs and wellbeing, and form the foundation for policies and services that directly impact children. This research aimed to further our understanding of adult attitudes towards children and young people, through the repeat of a benchmarking survey originally commissioned in 2016 by the Valuing Children Initiative (VCI).
