We have been ambitious, going beyond usual collaborations, bringing together researchers, policymakers, communities and practitioners from city- and system-wide UGBS initiatives. Addressing health inequalities through systems change for UGBS requires deep engagement which has already begun with confirmed civic, environmental and system-level partners including: local authorities and government departments in Belfast, Liverpool and Edinburgh; NHS organisations; third sector (e.g. Sustrans), the Environment Agency, Natural England; industry partners including Spotteron and AECOM; and social partnerships such as Eastside Partnership.

We have a range of partners at the local and national level in Northern Ireland, Scotland and England.
