Shelter has published a report examining the impact of the
private rental market on children's wellbeing. In England, 1 in 5
families rent privately with tenancy contracts lasting no longer
than 6 or 12 months. The survey of 4000 private renters reveals
that 44% of parents believe their children would have a better
childhood if they had more stable accommodation; 13% believe their
children are distressed by frequent moves with 1 in 8 families
reporting that they have to 'sofa surf' with friends and family
when they are between rental contracts. The report
