Our aims

The mission of the group is to improve the well-being, maximise the potential and reduce health inequalities of the working age population through cutting-edge, policy informing research.‌


This is structured around the central tenets of the Healthy Working Lives strategy: health promotion, health protection, rehabilitation, employability and lifelong learning.
