A new poll commissioned by the charity 4Children has revealed that 'too many' families are struggling in Wales.
More than 50 per cent of people in Wales believe family life is harder now than it was 20 years ago and believe their neighbourhood isn't a good place for their children to grow up.
Too many families are struggling in Wales today with limited potential and life chances as a result. Family life has changed beyond recognition over the past 30 years and our services and practices have often failed to keep up.
It's time to change. We need to have a major shift in ambition if we're going to make our communities great for families. If we want a country where families and children are valued and flourishing, then politicians and policy makers and those providing public services and running businesses all need to change the way they listen and respond to what families really want.
