Supporting Neglected Children - January 2012

Studies suggest there are 1.5 million neglected children in the UK and the long summer holidays can lead to an increase in the problems that they face

Neglect is a problem that is on your doorstep

Our new YouGov poll of over 2000 parents shows that it's an issue that needs tackling, especially during the summer break:

  • 1 in 4 parents fear for neglected children during the school holidays
  • 26% said children are more likely to be neglected during the summer
  • 23% worried that their children's friends were being neglected during the summer holidays
  • 14% fed a child, other than their own, during the school holidays because they weren't sure they were being fed properly at home

It's time we all took notice.
