Stronger position to inform national policy

From 1st April 2019, Humankind and Blenheim have merged to create one organisation that takes a new approach to addressing health and social inequalities. Together, we will have a stronger national voice on behalf of our service users and will further develop our campaigns to influence national policy.

We are committed to campaigning for best practice, ending stigma, reducing deprivation and exclusion and to improve people’s wellbeing.

One of the ways that we do this is through our sponsorship of the Drugs, Alcohol & Justice Cross-Party Parliamentary Group. The Group provides an interface for professional providers of drug and alcohol treatment with parliamentarians of all parties who share an interest in these issues and hold regular meetings in Parliament. 

Mary Glindon MP and Lord Ramsbotham Co-Chairs of the Parliamentary Group said:

“At group meetings, service providers such as Humankind enable us to hear first-hand accounts from the frontline. With Blenheim’s help, we were able to launch our powerful Charter for Change last year; and they have taken a lead role in the Alcohol Charter publication. Their input has been invaluable and instrumental to the success of the group.”

 We seek to focus attention on health and social inequality issues and advocate evidence-based policies, enabling services to save and transform more lives.
