Since October 2013 six teams have been developing their ideas as part of the Knee High Design Challenge. They've captured their journeys on film.

These films show six teams of talented, inventive, and voracious people who are working hard improve the health and well-being of children under five and their families in Southwark and Lambeth, as part of the Knee High Design challenge.

The teams are building the partnerships, networks and the customers they need to ensure this work with make a lasting difference.

These films show what they've been doing, what they've been learning and what they hope the future holds. We hope you enjoy them.
