UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health



Our research aims to answer questions that can make a positive difference to children and young people's lives. We have a particular focus on providing evidence that can be used by policy makers and providers of health and public health services. As a part of UCL, and as a programme within the world-renowned UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH), we are well placed to collaborate with leaders in child health research both in the UK and internationally.

Children's Policy Research Unit (CPRU)

CPRU was established by the Department of Health in 2011 to provide evidence for policy and practice that will improve the health and wellbeing of children, young people and families. It is a consortium led from ICH in partnership with the National Children's Bureau (NCB), the Anna Freud Centre and the Social Care Institute of Excellence (SCIE).

CPRU  has five research themes, four of which are being led by researchers in this Programme (the healthy child, healthcare provision, adolescent health and long term conditions).

Director: Professor Terence Stephenson
