Multiple long-term conditions
Programme Director Rohan Martyres shares his reflections on the impact of COVID-19 on local health inequity, and what it means for our work.
How we're acting on the evidence that debt and money worries can lead to food insecurity, poor diets, higher stress levels and deteriorating mental health.
Our work shows a strong link between a lack of financial security and ill-health. We're designing financial interventions to promote better health.
We discuss how we’re developing the social risk factors strand of our programme, and the types of organisations we’re looking to work with.
