Communities, Housing, Health and Social Inequalities
As an interdisciplinary research centre, we are focused on addressing health and social inequalities through numerous local and global projects. Among our areas of focus are: digital inclusion; healthy homes and social housing; workplace equality; food security and its influence on nutrition and health; social prescribing, biodiversity and health as well as climate adaptation.
Our teams focus on public engagement as a core activity through all stages of the research process, ensuring that right from the early inception of ideas, individuals, communities, businesses, NGOs, public sector organisations and a wide range of related groups are involved in the development of the scope and aims of research.
The following research activities represent a snapshot of our work in this area.
