Our research and evaluations

There is growing evidence that public policy to improve health equity needs to focus on the social determinants of health. Our community-driven approach to addressing health inequalities provides a strong evidence base to support this strategy.


Programme evaluations

Evaluations of our funding programmes provide strong quantitative and qualitative evidence and important learning for practical, local action on the social determinants of health.

Case studies

Case studies from independent evaluations of our funding programmes provide examples of practical solutions from local people. They demonstrate the impact of resident-led projects in inspiring positive change and reveal important learning about the challenges and opportunities.


We publish reports on areas related to health inequalities from our own research and in collaboration with partners. Specialised reports and research are published here.


Responding to consultations is one of the ways we can influence to tackle health inequalities, and ensure the views of the people living and experiencing disadvantage are heard and listened to.
