Coastal communities have some of the worst health and wellbeing outcomes in England, with a higher burden of disease, across a wide range of physical and mental health conditions (CMO Annual Report 2021).

In these communities there are also higher levels of unemployment, lower levels of educational attainment and an ageing population. There is a complex link between health, the environment and the economy and an urgent need to improve the life chances within these coastal communities.

The aim of the Centre is to deliver research, innovation, and impact to address the challenges coastal communities face and take advantage of the opportunities they offer.

The Centre’s official launch event explores the Centre’s vision and research, and provides an opportunity to help us develop and tackle key coastal challenges.
