It will also develop connections across policy and practice with The Great North Children’s Research Community which aims to promote and deliver the best health outcomes for children and young people across the region.

Confirmed speakers are Martin Lennon, Senior Policy and Public Affairs Analyst, Children's Commissioner's Office and David Taylor-Robinson, Professor of Public Health and Policy, Honorary Consultant in Child Public Health, University of Liverpool.
