Abstract

Commissioned to the Institute of Applied Health Research, Glasgow Caledonian University, this report presents results from a systematic review of the literature on the role and impact of social capital on the health and wellbeing of children and adolescents. The focus of the review is on intra- and inter-familial relationships, that is, interactions within families (family social capital) and between families and their local communities (community social capital) and how these influence the health and wellbeing of children and adolescents.
