We have a vision to promote a healthier, fairer future for children living in deprived areas through a focus on improving environments that can influence health and life chances.

With the award of a major grant from the UK Prevention Research Partnership (UKPRP), we are creating novel city research ‘hubs’ in Bradford and Tower Hamlets that will support the identification, implementation and evaluation of upstream interventions in areas with high levels of child poverty. These will provide a new and whole system environment where the public, scientists, policymakers and practitioners work with each other to develop and test early life upstream prevention solutions. Our ActEarly City Collaboratory will provide research-ready, people-powered and data-linked test beds to promote a fairer and healthier future for children and develop a global example of how to work with communities to improve health.

 

We are looking for someone who shares our exciting vision to join us in creating a ground-breaking research programme that will shape the lives of future generations.
