“Giving children the best start in life is by far the most effective way to address health inequalities in the long term.” This is the tenet of Children’s Alliance and the focus on the new report titled The Health & Wellbeing of Children in the Early Years. This report is the culmination of work from many sectors and considers where we are now as a society, as well as setting a roadmap for improving outcomes for children in the future.

The Physical Health Report
‘The Physical Health of Children and Young People’ shows that some groups of children and young people begin life hampered by disadvantage due to their family grouping, geographical, cultural or socioeconomic circumstances. This report outlines a series of proposals to address the concerns that without effective co-ordinated measures led by Government, the next generation of UK adults will be the least healthy in living memory.
