About us

The Centre for Inequalities focuses on exploring, understanding and reducing inequalities across various domains (for example, in education, health, the community, and the workplace). Our members conduct primary and secondary research, develop and evaluate evidence-based interventions, and work alongside practitioners and policy makers to promote equality, integration and social justice across the lifespan. Areas of study include inter-ethnic and inter-faith relations; nationalism, prejudice and stigma; refugee, Roma, homeless and other displaced and disadvantaged communities; LGBT and gender rights; older people; victimised and stigmatised groups; mental health and disability.

ILD | Institute for Lifecourse Development

Professionals from related fields will work closely together with researchers and stakeholders from public, charitable and voluntary organisations. Together they will develop effective and economically sustainable lifecourse solutions and tackle the grand challenge agendas society faces.
