We warmly invite you to attend A Christchurch CPAG talk on The effects of poverty on families and young people 

Speaker: Dr Sue Bagshaw

Sue will present findings from the Youth2000 study into the effects of poverty on high school students and their families. The Youth2000 survey series asks secondary school students  a wide range of questions that contribute to their health and wellbeing. 

The findings examine indicators of socioeconomic deprivation among secondary school students and present associations between household poverty, neighbourhood deprivation and health outcomes. There will be a chance for discussion following the presentation.
