Our team comprises researchers from Liverpool and Lancaster universities, Directors of Public Health with extensive strategic public health expertise, and public co-applicants and collaborators with lived expertise.

LiLaC’s approach has been refined over more than two decades of evaluating complex public health interventions and establishing responsive evaluation schemes in local government settings.

With a wealth of experience of coproduction with local authorities, third sector organisations and communities, our work is also underpinned by principles of co-production, public involvement and health equity assessment.

We have expertise in a range of methods including in-depth qualitative investigation, quasi-experimental and economic methods. Our place-based research platforms combine multi-sectoral whole population linked datasets with narratives on lived experiences of inequalities, which can be used to rapidly evaluate public health interventions across the UK.
