Depression: Time to think more about prevention?

"Focusing on depression this World Health Day serves as a reminder that thinking about health should not be limited to conversations about funding the NHS, although of course this is important. It’s also a call to consider how environments - from schools and offices to care homes – could better promote wellbeing, rather than stress and anxiety"


The Duality of Brexit

"While the disempowerment of white working class people is a key factor in the leave vote, we cannot hope to engage with people until we attempt to engage with both of the products of this problem; the legitimate and the illegitimate"

Employing Society

"A job isn't just about earning an income, but also a way to develop and improve ourselves. A job can be an outlet where we share our potential and passion for the benefit of those around us."


The Gig Economy

"But as the new economy begins to replace traditional services, there is an opportunity to shape this discussion to look at re-aligning workers and businesses, rather than pushing them further apart. Finding new and positive ways to strengthen an individual’s bond with work is the most challenging question to be answered in an increasingly casual and agile economy."
