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


A free half day good practice seminar from 4in10

When: Wednesday 27th  September 2017

Registration from 9.30am 

Free networking lunch from 12.30pm.

Where: The Lift, White Lion Street, Islington, London N1 9PW

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. 

The event will explore what we know about how debt impacts on family life and child health outcomes and look at how we can increase financial literacy and improve access to debt advice for those on a low income in London.

Join us to hear speakers from Step Change and Toynbee Hall, to share examples of good practice from the voluntary and statutory sectors.


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

 Event report and presentations now available.

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. 
This seminar brought together London policy-makers and practitioners to discuss local and regional interventions around food which improve child health and wellbeing outcomes, so that every child can have the best start in life.
