National Inclusive and Sustainable Economies Network

You are invited to join the new and emerging National Inclusive and Sustainable Economies Network.


Why now?

The COVID-19 pandemic, and its tragic effects, has contributed to an economic crisis, highlighting and exacerbating many of our underlying health inequalities and economic injustices. Never has it been clearer that health and the economy are two sides of the same coin.

Action is needed across the whole of society to reset the economy; to create fair and shared opportunities for prosperity, and to reduce health inequalities and build back better and fairer.

What it will do?

The National Inclusive and Sustainable Economies (NISE) Network is a multi-agency forum which aims to provide a space to explore the evidence, ideas, and promising practice about how we reset the economy for improved health and shared prosperity.  Launched in June 2021 by senior leaders working on place and inequalities from: PHE; the NHS Confederation; LGA; NHS England; and Metro Dynamics, it will provide an opportunity to network with others, share knowledge and learning and to bring experts to the table to challenge and grow our thinking. 

The network is open to all those with an interest including, for example, public health and clinical colleagues, NHS and ICS leads, local and central government departments, civil society, and the third sector.

The aim is that the network will be member-led. To get started however, we will:

  • run expert-led debate and discussion sessions every other month
  • establish a sharing platform for resources, discussion, and wider support on inclusive and sustainable economies
  • support cross-system collaboration through shared learning opportunities and focused discussions on specific areas of interest as identified by members.

How do I join?

The network is free to join - please email to the health equity inbox below to register and we will be in touch shortly.
