Tackling Health Exclusion

Co-creating asset and place-based approaches to tackling refugee and migrant health exclusion.


Led by: Professor Margaret Greenfields, Anglia Ruskin University. 

Refugees, asylum seekers and migrants can experience poor health caused by a variety of factors such as language barriers, employment, education and poverty.

The project will explore how community assets can be used to improve health, wellbeing and social support that addresses these factors. Examples of community assets include advice and information services, community hubs and groups, religious organisations and open spaces.

It will research new ways for these factors to be addressed within integrated health systems that bring together services such as the NHS and local authorities as well as the voluntary sector.
