As a part of our ethos, Cumberland Lodge aims to inform public opinion and policy action through convening cross-sector conferences, the discussions from which are used to advise in the writing of a Cumberland Lodge Report.

Ahead of each Cumberland Lodge conference, we commission a freelance Research Associate to present an accessible summary of cross-sector, interdisciplinary research. This briefing document helps to maximise the rigour of our conference discussions.

Key learning points and recommendations from the conferences are critiqued and refined at follow-up consultations, held at Cumberland Lodge, involving conference representatives and additional specialists who have significant experience in the field.

This process culminates in the publication of a Cumberland Lodge Report, which presents fresh, cross-sector and interdisciplinary insights into best practice and options for implementing positive change.

Our Cumberland Lodge Reports are also available on our profile and as e-books on
