How well have children fared in the UK in the thirty years since the National Children's Bureau was established in 1963. How has family life changed? What have been the main social and demographic changes? Has the welfare state continued to provide education, health care and social welfare for all children? These and other questions are considered as the authors reflect on the main changes in legislation, on key messages from research and on whether developments in practice have reflected these research findings.
