Researchers from the NIHR School for Public Health Research are carrying out a study of how local authorities and organisations can make places healthier at a time when local financing is often limited. This is part of our Places and Communities research programme.
We are interested in:
- local activities affecting wider determinants of health (including the physical environment, housing, transport, pollution, high street regulation and licensing, business strategies, employment and welfare assistance) in a context of resource constraints
- if and how communities are involved in shaping these types of activities, and if/how involvement has been affected by financial constraints
We want to review relevant local-level evidence. Do you know of any local reports or evaluations of the kinds of activities we are interested in, or of community involvement in shaping such activities, that were published in the last 10 years?
Reports and evaluations of new initiatives, expansions to existing activities, or efficiencies and cuts to services, would all be useful to us. Could you send us the relevant publication or a link please?
This research responds directly to research requests made to us by local practitioners during our consultations. If you can help, or if you can forward this to others who might be able to help, we would by hugely grateful.
Please send your reply to Stef Buckner, Research Associate at the University of Cambridge: firstname.lastname@example.org by the 31st October 2019.
Thank you for your interest and assistance.
