People, pathways and policy: findings from the CLS Research Programme

29th November 2018 9:30 to 18:30

This one day event from the Centre for Longitudinal Studies is an opportunity to hear evidence from a major programme of research examining and comparing the lives and experiences of thousands of individuals across the UK, from multiple generations. We will share brand new insights, and ask what these mean for public policy today.

Our Cross Cohort Research Programme is a major initiative, using data from our own four cohort studies and other UK studies, to understand how our lives unfold and what can help improve people’s chances in life.

Incorporating seven projects, the programme has explored many themes relevant to policy makers and practitioners, including:

  • The long-term implications of childhood mental ill health
  • The rising prevalence of obesity
  • The link between parents’ wealth and their children’s own life chances

At this event delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • learn about findings from each of the research projects
  • take part in discussions about the policy implications of each project’s findings, and
  • meet researchers as well as government policy-makers and representatives from the third sector.
