This report looks closely at the experiences of the hundreds of thousands of children living in poor quality or insecure housing. It runs alongside a major new programme of work to identify and quantify groups of children living in insecure or poor quality housing.
The Children’s Commissioner is concerned with what appears to be a sharp increase in homelessness among households with children. Stability is as important to children outside the care system as it is to those within it. Children with experience of homelessness spoke of how it led to bullying; of the tensions and stress it caused among family members; of being unable to do their homework; and of feeling cold, dirty, sad, embarrassed, worried and unsafe.
Children with a wide range of experiences were consulted to inform this business plan.
