Inequalities in Health Alliance

The Inequalities in Health Alliance (IHA) is a coalition of nearly 80 organisations, brought together by the Royal College of Physicians, which is calling for a cross-government strategy to address health inequalities and for the government to use the socio-economic duty, section 1 of the Equality Act 2010, to address health inequalities and to adopt a ‘child health in all policies’ approach.

The Living Wage Foundation

We know that being in low-paid employment or being in the low-pay-no-pay cycle, has a significant long-term negative impact on your health and your wellbeing.

People’s Health Trust is a principle partner of the Living Wage Foundation and member of the Living Wage Advisory Council. We currently support Living Wage Places which supports a group of local employers in towns, cities or boroughs, led by the council and including other anchor institutions to agree to become Living Wage Employers and work together on a plan to increase accreditations locally.

Living Wage Funders

The Living Wage Funders Scheme was co-developed by the Trust and Living Wage Foundation to help end low pay in the Voluntary and Community Sector. Funders commit to supporting applicant charities to pay the Living Wage to any grant-funded staff posts. The scheme was developed in collaboration with a range of other established funders including Trust for London; Barrow Cadbury Trust; Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Comic Relief and has so far resulted in 56 grant funders joining and committing over £1.8 billion in real Living Wage grant funding. The Trust currently chairs the steering committee Read more.

We’re Right Here

People’s Health Trust is supporting the We’re Right Here campaign. This national campaign is driven by community leaders and is calling on Parliament to pass a Community Power Act. A Community Power Act would: give communities a legal right to self-determination, so decisions about local services and spaces are made at the closest level possible, with the participation of local people; introduce ‘Community Covenants’; agreements between councils and communities to share power and shape services together; and create a Community Power Commissioner, who would hold the government accountable for its performance in upholding communities’ right to self-determination.
