- Aim: To co-produce inclusion health research, service, policy and advocacy priorities across the life course
- Date: Monday, 3 June 2019
- Time: 9am – 5pm
- Venue: London
This is an exciting opportunity to shape the future of Inclusion Health research priorities for London, the UK and internationally. This event will bring together experts from across the field of inclusion health including: Academics, Policy and Government, Experts by Experience, Health Services, Voluntary Sector and Grant Funders.
Please note this event is only open to people who have either experienced social exclusion or work with these populations – for example, homeless, drug users, prisoners, vulnerable migrants, and gypsies and travellers as there is very limited space.
What is the UCL Collaborative Centre for Inclusion Health (CCIH)?
The CCIH has been established by a multidisciplinary team of researchers passionate about improving the health of some of the most vulnerable and underserved members of society, and aims to close the extreme gap in health and life expectancy in socially excluded groups.
We aim to improve the care and outcomes of excluded groups (including: homeless, prisoners, migrants, drug users, sex workers) by:
- Co-producing, supporting and collaborating on research projects
- Testing and evaluating health services and interventions
- Advocating and lobbying for evidence to underpin practice, policy, effective healthcare, service provision and integration and education across sectors
- Striving to prevent social exclusion from occurring in the first place through research and advocacy on adverse childhood experiences and the wider determinants of health
