We work in partnership with third sector organisations to produce relevant research with high impact.
The Centre for Health and the Public Interest (CHPI) is an independent public-interest think tank founded in 2012. CHPI conducts critical research on health and social care to impact policy making. The aim of the Centre is to subject current policy to careful, evidence-based critical scrutiny; explore alternative solutions to the challenges of providing universal high-quality health and social care; promote greater democratic determination and accountability in the organisation and delivery of health and social care; and advocate for probity, integrity, and transparency in health policy-making.

We support our members to improve social care provision and enhance the quality of life, choice, control, and wellbeing of people who use care services. We are the voice of the not-for-profit care and support sector.
