New coastal consortium will feature ARC staff

Coastal communities continue to have more, and greater health challenges compared to their inland neighbours.

A new initiative, The Fylde Coast Research Consortium, will unite stakeholders from the public and voluntary, community, faith, and social enterprise (VCFSE) sectors to build partnerships, identify ways to address health disparities, and improve wellbeing in the area. It will increase understanding of multiple drivers of inequality across both North West and other coastal communities by mobilising the knowledge of people living and working in the Fylde Coast. ARC NWC staff from member organisations, including University of Liverpool and Lancaster University, will have key roles on the 9-month project.

Creative methods and co-production techniques will be utilised to unite experts-by-experience and experts-by-profession from the public and voluntary, community, faith, and social enterprise sectors. The consortium will also build partnerships and identify ways to address health disparities in Fylde Coast and in other coastal communities.
ARC NWC staff will contribute to work packages around knowledge exchange and capacity building in health economics. The project is funded as part of the second phase of the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Mobilising Community Assets to Tackle Health Inequalities investment.
