To create a healthier UK population, we need to mobilise people and organisations across a wide range of sectors to take action on the social determinants of health.

We’ve launched a new grant programme to fund partnership projects between UK Public Health Network organisations and partners from outside of the public health community. The projects must demonstrate the potential for improving people’s health by taking action on one or more of the social determinants of health.

The projects will work on four key areas of interest:

  • early years and education
  • work and income
  • housing and places
  • communities

We have up to 8 grants of £40-60k available to apply for between 5 September to midday 5 October 2018. Only organisations in the UK Public Health Network are eligible to apply. The projects will run for 12-18 months and aim to get the UK public health community working with others to take action on the social determinants of health.

We will announce the successful projects in early 2019 and aim to share learning from the projects in 2020, as part of our wider work on health inequalities and the social determinants of health.
