HERON is celebrating our longest running community partnership with the Institute of Women and Ethnic Studies (IWES). In celebration of their 25th year of serving communities, we’re supporting IWES in their fundraising efforts. If you’d like to make a donation, please see here.



HERON is an international public engagement network funded by the Wellcome Trust and aimed at people involved in action and research to tackle inequalities in health and health service use. It brings together people from the community, local charities, public health researchers and health practitioners with a vision of having a collaborative approach to research in the community.

The 2018 HERON conference included presentations, workshops, discussion, art and more on the theme of ‘current and future directions in health equity research and action’ from researchers, community organisations, and healthcare representatives. The conference took a future-orientated perspective to explore how we can learn from present research and tackle inequalities through future research and action.
