Where We Work

This will be achieved via contextually sensitive activities including co-development and delivery of accredited multi-disciplinary courses and locally driven research programmes, developing new sustainable partnerships between organisations to build expertise and capacity, mentoring senior leaders in the translation of research to policy.
