The National Children’s Bureau (NCB) is pleased to announce the publication of Delivering the Healthy Child Programme for young refugee and migrant children.
This report, based on a scoping study undertaken by NCB, discusses the barriers and enablers refugee and migrant families experience in promoting the health of their young children (from pregnancy to age 5). It explores how local authorities, in shaping their Healthy Child Programme 0-5, are addressing the needs of these young children and their families. The report makes recommendations for how national and local government can promote a healthy start for young refugee and migrant children in England.
This report will be promoted to local public health agencies and voluntary organisations to raise awareness and share examples of practice.
