Research shows why we need to act early to improve children’s health and opportunities | Research for the Real world

We continue our focus on research evidence and solutions to tackle complex challenges in London - this time taking into account longitudinal studies and contrasting areas with high levels of child poverty.


Professor George Ploubidis joins the podcast to discuss the work he and his team do at the Centre for Longitudinal Studies and how they relate to his research interests in the socioeconomic and demographic factors that contribute to people’s health across generations.


We also hear about the Act Early research consortium that focuses on children living in London’s Tower Hamlets and Yorkshire’s Bradford, both of which face high levels of poverty. The contributions of the consortium aim to improve lives and opportunities.
