Young Family

Welcome to The Family Commission website

Over the last 18 months The Family Commission has asked 10,000 families what they think about family life in Britain today.

Families told us that their daily experience was of politicians’ good intentions not effectively being translated from Whitehall to the village hall, and how Britain has become trapped with an outdated system that fails to understand their aspirations and cannot cope with the fast paced changes of modern life. The perception of families is of a state that either ignores them or tries to take over.

Our report, Starting a Family Revolution: Putting families in charge, maps out a route to change the dynamic between family and state – putting families in the driving seat. To find out more, download the full report here and the summary leaflet here.
