The Family Friendly Report Card 2011 offers insight into the extent to which the UK is advancing towards the goal of becoming a family friendly nation. Transport costs, childcare costs, housing problems, work-life balance issues and the economic climate restrict UK’s family friendly status and in 2011 the UK has received a ‘D plus’ grade for its status as a family friendly society. The report shows how tough making the UK family friendly is given the economic climate and considerable squeeze on public and family finances.
