Experts in health inequalities

We are a clinically-led and evidence-based non-profit, passionate about reducing the impact poverty has on health. 

Good health should be shared with all. It should not be damaged by social or economic disadvantage.

We exist to mitigate the effects of the inverse care law, adding capacity to systems which are otherwise overwhelmed by complex needs.

We conduct on-the-ground work to identify challenges, pilot solutions, build an evidence base and then work alongside local and national organisations and policy makers to implement system change.

How we do it

We work by promoting innovation, integrated working and co-production.

Innovation

We ensure we are not duplicating but provide unique solutions and promoting best practice. We are not afraid to take risks and learn just as much from what doesn’t work as what does.

Integrated working

Improving health outcomes should not be down to one sector alone. We ensure the VCSE, health, education, social care and political sectors are working together - promoting the idea that it is everyone’s responsibility to support the health of our communities.

Co-production

We are strong advocates that there is a wealth of knowledge and solutions amongst our communities. Our work, projects and outcomes happen with our communities, not to them.
