What is it all about?
In this submission a group of academics, students, practitioners, parents/carers and young people working as and with disadvantaged communities contributed evidence to a major State of the Nation report by Public Policy Projects (PPP) entitled Addressing the National Syndemic: Closing the Gap in UK Health Inequality which is set to be launched in October 2021. On the 27th August, 2021 a number of us contributed evidence to Health Inequalities Roundtable – Addressing the State of the Nation. They were looking for place-based solutions to addressing health inequalities and we shared our work with the Resilience Revolution.
