People-Centred Public Health examines how members of the public can be involved in delivering health improvement through volunteering. Drawing on a study of lay engagement in public health and using case studies and real-life examples, this timely book provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of policy, practice, and research in this area. In an economic and political climate where there is renewed interest in the role of the citizen, the authors challenge old orthodoxies in public health and build a coherent argument for radical change in the way public agencies support lay action.

About the Author:

Jane South is professor of healthy communities and director of the Centre for Health Promotion Research at Leeds Metropolitan University

Review:

“A clear and lively presentation of the issues from the perspectives of paid staff and lay health workers. . . . A good introduction to key theoretical and practical issues about lay involvement in health promotion.” (Sociology of Health and Illness)

"I recommend this book to anyone interested in the future of public health. It offers a compelling guide to the policies, research and practice for anyone engaged in helping people and communities to become active citizens taking control of the factors that will radically improve their health." (David Buck, Senior Fellow, Public Health and Health Inequalities, Kings Fund)

"Acknowledging citizens are part of the solution, not the problem, could lead to a 21st century flourishing of Public Health as important as the first one in the 19th century." (Trevor Hopkins, Asset Based Consulting and Co-author of A Glass Half-full)

“Participation is essential to health promotion action and people have to be at the centre of decision-making processes for it to be effective. This book offers a valuable, critical and timely analysis as government policy develops on active citizenship.” (Jane Wills, Professor of Health Promotion, London South Bank University)
