Centre for Research in Health and Society (CRiHS)



The Centre for Research in Health and Society (CRiHS) is part of the Institute of Health at the University of Cumbria. It is a multidisciplinary research centre that brings internal and external research agendas together locally, nationally and globally to transform lives. CRiHS focuses on inequality in each area of work, finding applied solutions to alleviate or prevent health and social inequalities, supporting everyone’s equal right to thrive.

If your work supports the health and wellbeing of individuals, groups and communities and are interested in research-informed practice then please contact us.
