Stark and widespread health inequalities in the UK represent a striking social injustice. The impact that social factors have on our health mean that even charities that are not explicitly pursuing a health-focused mission are helping to keep people well. Leading expert on the social determinants of health Sir Michael Marmot introduces new research from NPC on the important role the voluntary sector plays in helping us live longer, healthier, lives.
NPC’s blog features opinion, news and debate around key issues affecting charities and funders. As well as posts by our own expert team, we feature guest bloggers from across the voluntary sector: from front-line charities to philanthropy advisors, grant-makers to government commissioners.
