This publication, the first in the series, provides an introduction to, and summary of, what has been learned. The programme worked with 10 ‘demonstrator sites’ chosen in March 2016 from over 100 applicants to help

  • Planning and designing a healthier built environment
  • Enabling strong, connected communities
  • Creating new ways of providing integrated health and care services.

Drivers of health care expenditure: final report: (CHE Research Paper 169) – University of York Centre for Health Economics

Since the NHS was established growth in health care expenditure (HCE) has outpaced the rise in both GDP and in total public expenditure. Known drivers of HCE growth include demographic factors, income and wealth effects, technology and cost pressures. To identify the challenges and opportunities for developing a model of health care demand, this report looks at drivers of past trends in health care expenditure and how much each of the drivers has contributed to past increases in expenditure.   This report asks:

  • What are the drivers of past trends in health care expenditure and how much has each of the drivers contributed to past increases in expenditure?
  • How much has each type of service contributed to past trends in health care expenditure and why have there been different trends for different types of care?

Holy alliances: church-secular partnerships for social good – Demos

Demos report (based on a survey of 120 church leaders, ten expert interviews and twelve case study interviews) shows that due to austerity, more churches are partnering with non-faith voluntary organisations to tackle local issues such as poverty, mental health and loneliness. Research shows that partnership working has led to a number of benefits including unlocking resources and funding, boosting impact, administrative support and assistance in targeting the right group.The report calls for local authorities to seek to address any practical barriers to partnership working between churches and non-Christian groups, such as making funding for social action projects more accessible to churches. Other recommendations, include the discouragement of blanket policies against working with faith groups, and for local authorities to build on the good work of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Faith and Society and adopt their own version of the Faith Covenant.

Health care’s climate footprint: how the health sector contributes to the global climate crisis and opportunities for action – Health Care Without Harm

Health Care Without Harm report suggesting if the global health care sector were a country it would be the fifth-largest greenhouse gas emitter on the planet. The report finds health care’s footprint is equivalent to 4.4 per cent of global net emissions and that fossil fuel combustion makes up well over half of health care’s global climate footprint. The report makes the case for a transformation of the health care sector that aligns it with the Paris Agreement goal of limiting climate change to 1.5 degrees celsius.

The good life: measuring inclusive growth across communities – Centre for Progressive Policy and All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Inclusive Growth

Centre for Progressive Policy report produced jointly with the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Inclusive Growth, introduces the new CPP Inclusive Growth Community Index. This combines data on five key outcomes – consumption, healthy life expectancy, leisure, inequality and unemployment – to create an inclusive growth score (IG score) applicable to local and combined authorities up and down the UK. Delivering inclusive growth (IG) is one of the most urgent challenges facing economies across the world. Simply, the economy is not delivering prosperity for all. The pervasiveness of GDP statistics as the principal barometer of economic performance is a key barrier to achieving inclusive growth, reinforcing an economic status quo that prioritises quantity over quality. Developing new, credible measures of inclusive growth and embedding these within economic decision-making is a critical step towards achieving broad-based economic prosperity.

The new realists: Unite Students Insight Report 2019 – Unite Students

Unite Students report, produced together with the Higher Education Policy Institute, investigates young people’s transition to university, their expectations and their experiences in the first year, looking at both academic and non-academic aspects. Among the findings are that loneliness and mental health are growing issues, with one-in-four students ‘often’ (22 per cent) or ‘always’ (four per cent) lonely.  Future stability is a dominant motivator for current and prospective students within the context of a world that is perceived as uncertain and risky. As such, an undergraduate degree is perceived as a period of transition between a stable past and a hoped-for stable future.

Policy briefing: social care funding and mental health – Centre for Mental Health

Centre for Mental Health briefing exploring what a fair and sustainable funding settlement for social care needs to look like in order to deliver parity of esteem for mental health and sufficient funding to support people of working age as well as those in later life. It reviews the current funding and provision of mental health social work for people of working age in England. It finds that mental health social work has a vital role in helping people to live independently and to secure their rights and dignity.  A successful funding settlement for social care must begin with a recognition that a significant proportion of adult social care supports people of working age: it is not just for those in later life. Social services have specific responsibilities in relation to mental health, as they do for people with learning disabilities and other care needs, at all stages of life.
