In 2007 Barnardos conducted a national childhood poll. We wanted to get to the nub of what parents and young people feel are the biggest issues impacting on childhood today. When asked about what factors contribute to a good childhood, the parents interviewed ranked a safe community third. Strikingly, the children who participated also ranked it third - after a loving family and friends, and before things like sports, brothers and sisters and pets.
