Building Neighbourhoods That Thrive:

Improving neighbourhood settings to promote child and family well-being

The neighbourhood in which a child grows-up can greatly influence their developmental outcomes and opportunities for success.  Understanding how to build effective structures and systems within those communities is therefore critical for the long term health and well-being of children and their families.

Join CIFAR and the Toronto Child and Family Network for a Change Makers webcast in which researchers and community and government leaders will explore how social inequalities within and between neighbourhoods can impact social capital networks and in turn neighbourhood outcomes. With this understanding, participants will also discuss what neighbourhood settings can best support the well-being of children and families and how to work collectively to improve outcomes.
