Extensive research has been conducted on the importance of neighbourhoods in the lives of children. Communities have a significant effect on healthy child development. Research indicates that factors such as socio-economically mixed neighbourhoods, access to parks and play spaces, strong intersectoral support for child development and neighbourhood safety all play a role in shaping children’s lives.
