Growing up North is a year-long project by the Children's Commissioner for England that will put children at the heart of discussions about Northern regeneration.

This factsheet provides an introduction by Children’s Commissioner Anne Longfield, and an overview of the project which details its specific aims.

In essence, Growing Up North aims to:

  • Look at the progression of children from early years to early adulthood across different areas.
  • Increase understanding of children’s attitudes, aspirations and expectations and how these relate to locality.
  • Assess the opportunities available to young people between and within different regions.
  • Make clear recommendations to local regional and national government.
