Phase 2 of the Communities in Control study funded under NIHR SPHR's health inequalities programme
has recently been approved following scientific review.
The research is investigating early social and health impacts of community empowerment in a major area based initiative – Big Local
– being rolled out in 150 neighbourhoods across England.
Coordinated by Professor Jennie Popay, LiLaC, (Liverpool and Lancaster Universities Collaboration for Public Health Research), the study involves direct collaboration between five SPHR members (LiLaC, Exeter, Fuse (a collaboration between Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria and Sunderland Universities), LSHTM and ScHARR). The University of Cambridge is involved in an advisory role to the study. Phase 2 runs for 18 months from October 2015 to March 2017.
