Melting Pot Lunch supporters
The Nuffield Trust is an independent health think tank aiming to improve the quality of health care in the UK by providing evidence-based research and policy analysis and informing and generating debate.
Grounded in the practical implications of policy-making and working closely with NHS staff and policy-makers to identify solutions, we aim to help achieve a high quality health and social care system that improves the health and care of people in the UK.
We set out to do this by:
- improving the evidence base that leads to better care by undertaking rigorous applied research and policy analysis
- using our independence to provide expert commentary, analysis and scrutiny of policy and practice
- bringing together policy-makers, practitioners and others to develop solutions to the challenges facing the health and social care system.

C3 Collaborating for Health
C3 Collaborating for Health’s vision is of a world where there are no premature or preventable deaths from chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs) because people find it easier to live healthy lives.
Each year, 70% of deaths globally are from just four major chronic diseases – cardiovascular disease, cancers, type 2 diabetes and chronic lung disease. Some 17 million of those deaths are of the under-70s, many of working age with families to support. Despite this, NCDs are under-reported, under-acknowledged and under-funded.
Founded in 2009 in a time when healthcare was largely equated with disease and sickness, C3 Collaborating for Health has helped shift the focus to prevention and wellbeing by addressing NCDs and their risk factors before people fall sick or need care.
C3 fosters multi-sector collaboration to catalyse action in the global community, to promote three behaviour changes:
- improving diet and avoiding harmful alcohol use
- stopping smoking
- increasing physical activity.
Bringing together ‘unusual suspects’ from our global network of more than 2,500 professionals in 70+ countries to encourage behaviour change for NCD prevention is at the core of C3’s work.
Our projects focus on:
- local communities changing their environment
- businesses changing their products, people and customers
- health professionals, particularly nurses
- workplace health.
These varied projects are connected by their focus on the three risk factors, and reflect our years of expertise in strategy consulting, research and writing; evaluation; content-rich events; and creation and management of influential networks, partnerships and collaborations.
Together, we can make it easier to live healthier. Join our network today at c3health.org.
