Supporting the health and wellbeing of children and families is a national public health priority. Rates of child poverty in the UK are increasing and families on low incomes and living in areas of relative socio-economic deprivation experience poor health and social outcomes (1). Public engagement and research activities often fail to hear the voices of children and families from deprived communities about their ‘lived experience’ of health and wellbeing. This collaborative, place-based community engagement project aimed to bridge this gap and to create awareness and understanding of what is important to children and families in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.
