Understanding Children's Well-being: A national survey of young people's well-being

G Rees, J Bradshaw, H Goswami, A Keung

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Our two-year research programme is the first comprehensive exploration of well-being from a child's perspective in this country. In the research, we asked over 7,000 children what determines their life satisfaction in a wide range of aspects of their lives and this report will reveal what they told us.

This new work, led by The Children's Society's Director of Research, Gwyther Rees, and developed in collaboration with Professor Jonathan Bradshaw at the University of York, explores the foundations of childrens' well-being and will become an important benchmark for the well-being of children and young people in England today.
