How we work

There are considerable and persistent health inequalities experienced by under-served groups in the UK. Health research and clinical trials do not fairly represent these groups, which means health services and treatments may be less effective for those who need them most.  

Egality is a community engagement agency working to improve health inequalities by increasing diversity in research. With our network of community organisations, we connect the groups most impacted by health inequalities with the health and life sciences sector. 

Together, we work collaboratively to bring new insights, new ways of working, and deliver creative campaigns and strategies, that increase diversity in research and improve health inequalities. 

Organisations we've partnered with

“Working with the Egality Health team and community organisations has not only meant that we have had an overwhelming response from the diabetes community to take part in our research, but regular discussions with the teams have also given us great insight into strategies to take forward to better represent lived experience of diabetes in patient public involvement for research.”

“Our community organisation partners were at the heart of all project decisions and discussions and it is their views, not the academics, that are reflected in the results. It is the community voice that gives the results their credibility. This way of working would not have been possible with the community links that Egality brought, and the trusted partner role Egality played. In short, the project would not have been possible without Egality.”
