Cover of the Health Justice Partnerships report

The latest report, Health Justice Partnerships: Funding welfare rights advice services to work in partnership with healthcare, discusses findings from research to understand the nature of funding for health justice partnerships in the UK.

It is intended to inform local and national action to improve sustainable funding for health justice partnerships.

75 partnerships highlighted the challenges around short-term funding as well as the factors that contributed to new and sustained funding. In spite of the fragmented nature of funding for the advice sector nationally, there is a strong case for investment to support health and address health inequalities.
