Improving Health and Wellbeing Outcomes in the Early Years – Research and Practice
‘Improving Health and Wellbeing Outcomes in the Early Years – Research and Practice’ is a new publication produced by CES together with the Institute of Public Health (IPH).
The early years is a critical period for child health and wellbeing. Children who grow up with positive and secure relationships with their caregivers, in safe, secure and stimulating environments that promote child development, are more likely to be happy and healthy. They are also more likely to experience better physical and mental health, greater educational achievement, and more economic security. Children experiencing social disadvantage are less likely to experience these outcomes due to a range of factors which impact on the conditions in which they are born and grow. This book explores how prevention and early intervention approaches can contribute to tackling these social inequalities and improve children’s outcomes, before they become embedded and costly.↓ Read the publication - Improving Health and Wellbeing Outcomes in the Early Years – Research and Practice
