Our policy work in Health and Wellbeing

Our policy work in health and wellbeing looks at how health and wellbeing interfaces with disadvantage. We look at the interaction of mental health with our other areas of focus, such as education, housing and justice. And we develop solutions to improve health outcomes and improve people’s wider life chances.

Our health and wellbeing policy and research areas

Our research focuses in health and wellbeing policy are:

We draw on our expertise working with people in the justice system to highlight challenges and put forward policy solutions. We aim to break the link between poor mental health and substance misuse and crime. And we work to improve access to services and treatment to help people build positive lives away from crime.

We draw on our experience delivering frontline support services to highlight the importance of acting early to promote good mental health and wellbeing.

We draw on our experience working with people with substance misuse problems to highlight the challenges they face and the support needed.

We are committed to driving change to shape health and wellbeing policy, driven by the experiences and problems faced by our service users.
