Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK.

Their aim is a healthier population, supported by high quality health care that can be equitably accessed. They aim to learn what works to make people’s lives healthier and improve the health care system. From giving grants to those working at the front line to carrying out research and policy analysis, shining a light on how to make successful change happen.

Last year they produced a fantastic toolkit to support researchers to communicate about their research, and we think this is a fantastic resource that deserves another look.
