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.
Explore what we’re learning about improving health in cities.
Children's mental health
We commissioned ethnographic research to help us better understand the reality of life for children and families affected by behavioural difficulties.
Rosie, 11, lives in a flat in Southwark with her mum and her four siblings. Rosie was diagnosed with ADHD four years ago and is now on medication, which has changed her behaviour dramatically.
Zack, 7, lives with his mum and sister in Southwark. He has not yet been formally diagnosed. He is bubbly and energetic, but can be quick to explode and have full-blown tantrums.
Raina, 18, and Audrey, 14 live together with their mother in Southwark. Raina has no official diagnosis, but has a suspected form of affective disorder, and Audrey has been diagnosed with OCD, depression, and anxiety.
Jaydan, 11, lives with his dad and brother in Lambeth. Jaydan was diagnosed with ADHD while he was living with his mum, and is currently being assessed through CAMHS to see if he has autism.
Data and analytics
Our data team investigate what the 2021 census reveals about Lambeth and Southwark.
Health effects of air pollution
We’re working with Ricardo, a renowned environmental consultancy that helps businesses measure and mitigate their air pollution emissions.
Children's health and food
We joined over 25 innovative food brands, investors and business support providers in calling on the Government to reconsider the U-turn on restrictions of promotions of HFSS products.
Air pollution is an urgent public health crisis and a social justice issue. We must seize this unique opportunity to tell Government to prioritise clean air.
