Many factors influence health. For vulnerable youth, where they are born, grow, live, attend school and age have an important influence on their health. Health equity seeks to reduce inequalities and to increase access to opportunities and conditions conducive to health for all.
At Resolute Clothing we are supporting charitable organizations working in communities to create opportunities for vulnerable youth to improve their health by impacting the factors that influence their health and addressing the inequities faced in their communities.
We look to organizations to address the following five broad range of environmental factors (personal, social, economic and environmental) that can positively address the health of vulnerable youth and the communities they live in.
- Education and literacy
- Childhood experiences
- Social supports and coping skills
- Healthy behaviours
- Access to health services
