Disadvantage and child welfare

Nesta has published a report looking at gaps between disadvantaged children and their peers in England. The report looks at the impact of the home environment, including the quality of the parent-child relationship, as well as economic factors. The report analyses data from an existing study into education and development. Findings include that living in a more challenging home environment primarily affects socio-emotional outcomes, whereas economic disadvantage primarily influences cognitive outcomes.
