Reports from our most recent events:

Tackling Debt for Health: Improving child and family health outcomes through local debt interventions. 

 Event report and presentations.

This event was held on Wednesday 27th  September 2017

It is estimated that around 7.6 million people in the UK are spending more than a quarter of their income on debt payments. Such high levels of debt are both unsustainable and deeply damaging, to both physical and mental health.  Speakers from Step Change, the London Borough of Newham and Toynbee Hall, to shared examples of good practice.

Food for health: Improving child health outcomes through local food interventions.

 Event report and presentations.

This event was held on 27th June 2017

 Affordable access to sufficient, nutritious food is vital for child health and wellbeing. Poor diet is linked to child obesity, malnutrition, poor physical and cognitive development, as well as behavioural issues and impacts on a child’s ability to concentrate and learn. 

With nutrition so vital to child health outcomes and later life chances, ensuring that all families have sufficient access to healthy food is a key concern for London policy-makers.
