Health and charities

Health charities and their funders make a vast contribution to the public’s wellness—from providing expert healthcare to conducting cutting-edge research. The public support for NHS charities during coronavirus, notably via the efforts of Captain Tom, raised awareness of health charities like never before.

At the same time, the wider charity sector’s work on social issues helps to tackle the causes of ill-health, such as by improving housing and alleviating loneliness isolation. This was a key argument of the Marmot review.

Through research, collaboration and convening, we’re helping this contribution become recognised and harnessed. We’re supporting health charities with shared measurement, advocating for a health data lab, and researching the role of non-health charities in improving health outcomes. Contact us to get involved in these projects.
