Barnardo’s commissioned a YouGov poll of 1,001 children aged 14-17 across Great Britain. They were asked to imagine themselves aged 30 and answer a set of questions about what their lives would be like at that age. Key Findings show:

  • 55% of children responding believe that their generation will not be as well off as their parents.
  • 34% think their own children will be even worse off than they are.

61% don’t think they’ll own their own house – 24% think they’ll still be at home with their parents and 10% in shared accommodation.
