Project Description

Understanding the effect novel collaboration of public sector factors has on approaches to tackling poverty and health inequality in North Wales and model future growth potential, and the impact on wider public services of this approach.

The 2025 Movement (www.2025movement.org) is a place based partnership formed in 2015 in North Wales with a mission to end avoidable health inequalities in the region by 2025. We are made up of senior leaders and practitioners from the public and third sector in North Wales.

In The 2025 Movement we are leading public sector innovation in North Wales and pushing the boundaries of how we can work together through voluntary partnerships.

This project will be an exploration of this innovative form of collaborative working and public sector partnership, you will be generating an understanding of the movement’s impact on health inequality and poverty in the region, and modelling how this type of collaboration can be expanded for the future.

You will be helping the 2025 Movement engage with, and explore, these working relationships by helping us ask the right questions and find the best answers through close partnerships with a host of public sector leaders across North Wales as well as world class academics here at Bangor University.

This will be a highly visible role that will require a dynamic, engaging, and confident individual who can remain open minded as they work with our team to ask challenging questions and explore complex avenues of research.

This Research Masters will give you the opportunity to gain experience across a number of public services in North Wales, and address problems at the forefront of public sector research.
