  • higher risk of being obese,
  • higher risk of being open to social care, higher risk of self-harm.

 

As a result, Cheltenham Borough Council and its partners have committed to a year of action, called No Child Left Behind, that will:

  • Highlight the issue of children growing up in poverty in Cheltenham and the inequality between them and their more affluent peers
  • Start to address the inequality gap beginning with 12 month programme of events and activities
  • Be a call to action for all sectors to work together to make transformational change over the longer-term
