Healthy Futures for Young People
Secondary school is a critical time for young people’s health, when both healthy and unhealthy habits and behaviours can emerge and become set.
Schools are in a strong position to help young people be healthy but evidence of how to best do this is rarely generated and used by schools in Wales.
The School Health Research Network is a network of secondary schools in Wales who have joined together with researchers, the Welsh Government and other organisations to support young people’s health.
The aim of the School Health Research Network is to improve health and wellbeing. The network helps schools in Wales work with researchers to generate and use good quality evidence about health improvement.
The 209 schools in the School Health Research Network are joined by our partners.
Schools in the School Health Research Network receive a number of benefits.
The Advisory Board role is to critically review the strategy and activities of the network.
