Growing Up North – Look North: A generation of children await the powerhouse promise (The Children’s Commissioner, 2018)
This report examines children’s experience of growing up in the north today, in the context of economic disadvantage. It is the result of a year of conversations with children, businesses, councils, health professionals, and charities. The work examined research and data, visited leading lights, looked at examples of creativity, and looked across the north and elsewhere in the country for inspiration and evidence of what works. Results are set out in the report and its recommendations for change.
