This seminar series has now closed

Jointly organised by the CEP and The Children's Society as part of the The Good Childhood Enquiry

The Good Childhood Inquiry was the UK's first independent national inquiry into childhood. The inquiry opened an inclusive debate on what makes for a good childhood today that will shape future policy and inspire all our relationships with children. This series of seminars on the well-being of children featured leading academics in the fields of education and well-being who presented key research evidence directly related to the issues addressed by the Good Childhood Inquiry panel.
