Research theme: Population health and social care
We help local authorities (LAs) to decide the best ways to provide services to promote health and wellbeing. We look at persistent problems such as child and young people health inequalities, impacts of multiple disadvantage, pollution, and sustainable social care, and emerging issues such as gambling, addiction and knife crime.
Our systems approach addresses multi-level risk factors and worsening inequalities within the context of organisational and financial constraints.
We are working with communities, health and social care practitioners, commissioners and local government to respond to their most pressing issues, and co-produce interventions designed for rapid application locally, and more widely across our region and beyond.
