Sir Paul Coleridge on Victoria Derbyshire show

Marriage Foundation’s Founder and Chairman Sir Paul Coleridge interviewed parents and children affected by family breakdown on BBC 2's popular Victoria Derbyshire show on Monday morning the 8th of February 2016.

The programme highlighted the real and long-lasting pain and cost of broken homes. Family breakdown causes emotional trauma and diminishes children's well-being and life chances. £47bn of taxpayer money is spent on family breakdown each year. Sir Paul Coleridge called family breakdown a public health issue on the show and said that more must be done to keep families together.
