The Good Childhood Inquiry was commissioned by the Children's Society and launched in 2006 "as the UK's first independent national inquiry into childhood. Its aims were to renew society's understanding of modern childhood and to inform, improve and inspire all our relationships with children." On 5th February 2009, the Children's Society launched the findings of the inquiry in the report entitled 'A Good Childhood: Searching for values in a competitive age'.
The website provides information on how the research was conducted, the evidence from the inquiry, recommendations from the inquiry and a summary of the report and the Children’s Society’s response to it. Currently the full text of the report is only available for purchase and details of how to do this can be obtained through these web pages.
