Children living in households with complex needs

The Children’s Commissioner for England has published a report analysing the voices of children living in households with domestic abuse, parental substance misuse and parental mental health problems. The report presents findings from interviews with 15 children and young people aged 6 to 19 who were supported in three projects in London, Doncaster and Herefordshire. The interviews explored: how experiences at home affected their emotional wellbeing, mental health, behaviour and relationships with family and friends; how they coped; what stopped them from speaking out about what was happening at home; and their experience of support.
