Fair Society, Healthy Lives – The Marmot Review.

A child’s social environment can influence their cognitive development and educational attainment with children who engage in good social relationships, more likely to perform better academically than those who do not.
A sense of belonging and feeling part of a community can be nurtured in many ways. Our family, friends and communities all support to build the foundations for good health.
A sense of belonging and feeling part of a community can be nurtured by:
Building positive relationships and networks
Community cohesion and connection
Opportunities for social participation
Shared ownership and empowerment
