Child of the North

Our vision is for children in the North of England to grow up with the same opportunities and life chances as those in the rest of the country.

“It is not acceptable that children born in the North face the prospect of shorter lives. Everyone deserves to have the same chances, but we know that many families in the North face a daily struggle to meet basic needs.” Professor David Taylor-Robinson, Health Equity North Academic Director

“People born in the North can expect to live at least one year less than the English average.” Health Equity North: 2023 report
