Barnardos Collaboration

Our Health Equity Collaborative with Barnardos, a children's health charity in the UK, seeks to enable children and young people to live healthy, happy lives, irrespective of the circumstances of their birth, and despite the current economic climate.

Over a three year programme, we have co-designed a Children and Young People’s Health Equity Framework with ICS, voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) local partners and children and young people. This is linked on the right hand side alongside additional materials.

This framework was created with support from children and young people, and Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) partners in the ICS region.

This partnership is ongoing, and we have plans to create more research and work focussing on children and young people's physical and mental health across the UK,
