Voluntary sector resources for public health

The voluntary sector is a producer and provider of a number of resources in public health. With resources we mean tools, websites, digital assets, elearning modules and reports etc. where significant research or effort has been made.

The UK Health Forum has produced a directory of these resources of its member bodies. Feel free to search the directory and upload your resources. The resource must be accessible via the Internet, so please provide a URL. (If you have a resource that you would like to make available on the web and need help with this, please contact us.) They must also be from the last three years only.

Note: Do not upload every report you have produced, be selective. Is it a true resource? Does it provide guidance, does it summarise a current situation, is it a learning tool? Upload information about each individual collection/repository/piece of research, not every component of it. 

This directory will help us promote your work to all those working in public health, showcase your efforts and allows us to map out important resources within public health to decision-makers. You can use this directory to seek out collaborations, spot gaps in research or for creating complementary resources.
