Bristol Network for Equality in Early Years Health and Wellbeing (BoNEE)

The Bristol Network for Equality in Early Years Health and Wellbeing Health Integration Team (BoNEE HIT) is a team of academics, public health specialists, parent and community groups representatives. It aims to tackle the health inequalities that have a profound and lifelong impact on the health and wellbeing of children.

Deprivation in Bristol is higher than average for England, with nearly 20,000 children living in poverty. Around one in 13 children in Bristol have a chronic or potentially disabling condition which impacts on their daily lives. With a rising child population, Bristol needs a local evidence base along with staff and services that recognise and respond to inequalities in children's health.
