Unresolved conflicts between adults can have a significant impact on children. There is updated advice and self-help resources for families struggling with their relationships available at

We know that there are many different reasons for conflict in families, for example:

  • debt worries
  • moving home
  • becoming new parents
  • partner fidelity
  • health
  • other stress-inducing issues

The government has recognised that this can have a significant impact on children and their well-being. They have committed to providing increased support across the country for families experiencing conflict.
