The Health Foundation is beginning to implement a long-term strategy to improve people’s health in the UK.
The Foundation are inviting proposals for research to further the understanding of factors that shape young people’s future health prospects, as part of a Health Foundation inquiry on the topic.
The project requires a research partner with a track record of high quality policy and practice research in the field of young people (specifically between the ages of 12 and 24 years old and transitions to adulthood).
The aim is to produce a quantitative picture of the factors that contribute to today’s young people having healthy lives, now and in the future, and recommendations for the actions necessary to improve future health prospects.
We anticipate bids of up to £180,000 for research completed over 18 months, by March 2019.
The foundation will hold an information call on Wednesday 17 May 2017 with a closing date for applications at 12 noon on Monday 5 June 2017.
