Is UK Accused of Failing Its Children?

children-of-uk_50Recent report by UNICEF has asserted that in spite of being a wealthy nation, United Kingdom is failing to give native children the best possible start in life. It has landed on 21st rank for looking after the well-being of the children.

The top three positions have been occupied by Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark.

The parameters laid by UNICEF were poverty, peer, family relationships and health.

However, some organizations have criticized the findings for example children’s charities have postulated that it has made progress on child well-being through several initiatives.

Jim Murphy, Welfare Reform Minister has personified the data as outdated and has stated that there has been progress made on homelessness among children.

Meanwhile, the Children’s Commissioner for England, Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green, said he was not surprised by the report’s findings.

It’s very much in line with what children and young people are telling me about their lives today.

It could be assumed what the position of children could be in such a well off nation, seriously it’s a matter of shame on the part of the authorities.
