Bemis Scotland and 4Children have joined together to put on 3 workshops here in Scotland where you can give us your views on what it is like to be a parent or carer in today’s world.  Please take time to join us at one of the workshops on 30th October and give us your views.

4Children Inquiry Surveys – Britain’s Families: thriving or surviving?

Children and families charity 4Children has recently launched a major Inquiry into modern family life in Britain. Britain’s Families: thriving or surviving?” asks parents, carers and young people across the country about what it is like to live in Britain today. We want to uncover the challenges and opportunities they face, and ask what can be done to better support family life. You can read more about the Inquiry at: 

As part of the project, there will be three focus groups in Glasgow on Friday 30th October, for parents and carers who would be interested in participating.  BEMIS Scotland are particularly keen to make sure that the voice of the diverse ethnic minority community is heard.  The focus groups will be taking place at Centrum Building, 38 Queen Street, Glasgow at the following times:

If you are unable to attend a focus group but are interested in taking part in the Inquiry, 4Children are also running two surveys to gather views from people in England, Scotland and Wales. One is for children and young people (aged under 21) and the other is for parents and carers. These are available via the following links:
