We focus on four complex health issues more prevalent in urban areas
With the Social Progress Imperative, we've developed the first neighbourhood level, health-focused social progress index of its kind.
With Wellcome Trust
We want to hear from you.
Where we grow up, live and work hugely influences our health. And in urban areas, we see the best and worst health outcomes, often just roads away from each other. We are Impact on Urban Health. We're focused on improving health in inner-city areas by understanding and changing how inequalities impact our health.
Data and analytics
Using data is a crucial part of the way we make decisions as a partner and funder to other organisations. Our Interim Data and Analytics Director, Claire Bénard, reflects on how to use data responsibly.
Can health research be more equitable, and enable local residents to lead the research agenda?
Our impact-first social investments are designed to diversify the support partner network and, ultimately, to deliver more equitable health outcomes in our place.
Rowena Estwick talks about the need for an equitable research approach to create policies with impact and amplify underrepresented voices.
We work with local, city, national and international organisations to help urban areas become healthier places to live.

With Community Southwark
We fund and partner with others to tackle complex health issues more prevalent in urban areas.
We want to find ways to support young people from urban areas with mental health issues and learn how to reduce mental health inequality in communities living on low incomes.
We want to break the link between low income and poor nutrition, by improving the quality of food options in lower-income neighbourhoods.
We want to address the health effects of poor air quality on people whose health is most impacted by air pollution: children, older people and people with heart and lung conditions.
We want to address the social and economic determinants of health in order to ensure longer, healthier lives for people with multiple long-term conditions.
