Families and Children

Pain can sometimes seem like an ‘uninvited guest’ or ‘intruder’ into family life. Here you will find resources to help families to team up on pain together.

Children with chronic pain
Chronic pain is about as common among children as it is among adults. At any one time between 15% and 35% of school-age children may be affected by chronic pain. Yet the 2008 Chief Medical Officer’s Report warned that children’s pain is often neglected – perhaps because it is still seen as an adult problem.

Chronic pain in children can impact on many areas of everyday life including:

  • School and work (for older children)
  • Social life
  • Family relationships

You can also order our leaflet for supporting parents of a child or young person in pain from our online shop.
