Families want to move abroad

Have your say

NEW research has revealed that half of Sheffield’s families would like to start a new life abroad.

The government study into the remaining similarities between the state of South Australia and the UK found that 49 per cent of parents with children would like to emigrate.

Families living in the city gave the weather as their number one reason for wanting to move. The economic downturn and expensive housing were also cited.

The survey also found that 89 per cent of Sheffield families want their children to grow up in a country with a stronger sense of community than they believe exists in the UK, while nine out of 10 parents said they want their children to live in a country with less of a celebrity culture.
