We have published the latest update to our guide on Producing Information for Children and Young People. The guide was first published in 2013 and has been updated regularly since.
In the decade since the first edition, the information landscape has changed beyond recognition providing new ways to provide children and young people with information in accessible and appealing formats.
However, it is also recognised that much of health inequality begins in childhood. The new update places health inequality and the need to engage children and young people of all backgrounds at its centre.
