SCCR ask Scottish families to #HaveYourSay
Since SCCR launched in 2014, we have held regular surveys every few years to update our understanding of the scale and nature of family conflict and relationship breakdown in the country. The results from the most recent national survey, held in 2019, were stark. 43% of young people said arguments happened at home regularly, while 53% said arguments had affected their mental health.
In 2022, SCCR want to hear from you again, and are reaching out to Scottish families and professional to help build a complete picture of the state of family conflict and relationship health at home.
What are services like in your area for handling conflict at home? Are there conflict resolution or mediation services you can turn to? If so, how do you access them? What impact has Covid had on your family? If you’re a professional working with young people, what would help you support them better?
Colin Waters, SCCR Digital Content Manager, said,
“Discussing family life is not always easy. But by completing these surveys and sharing your views, you will be helping us to develop new ways to support your needs and those of others.”
The survey is broken into three questionnaires, linked below:
The survey will take about ten minutes to complete, and is open for responses until Monday 17 October 2022. All responses will be anonymous.
And for those interested, parents/carers and young people filling out the survey can also win a gift card through a special prize draw!
