The UK’s life expectancy is falling behind other countries in Europe, according to new analysis. There are plenty of things that affect the nation’s health, which means even the work of non-health charities may be helping keep people well. At NPC we’re working on a guide to help voluntary sector organisations better understand the social determinants of health. Katie Boswell explains.
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.
