Our team comprises researchers from Lincoln, Nottingham and Loughborough universities with extensive public health research expertise, and public co-applicants and collaborators with lived expertise.

With a wealth of experience in co-production with a wide range of stakeholders, our work is underpinned by robust principles of patient and public involvement (PPI). Patient involvement is at the heart of our approach, to ensure our work will benefit them, their carers, the public and their communities.

We have expertise in a range of quantitative and qualitative methods to successfully evaluate complex public health interventions and establish responsive evaluation schemes in local government settings. With our work we seek to contribute towards the development of evidence-based health initiatives that improve the public’s health and the opportunity for all to live as healthily as possible (irrespective of where they live, their background or situation), with equity, diversity and inclusion being central to our research.

As a team, we aim to apply innovative practices, building networks and partnerships across a wide geographical area with diverse populations and communities that support the different narratives and life experiences of our communities across the UK.
