International Centre for Lifecourse Studies in Society and Health: Transition Funding

Lead Research Organisation: University College London
Department Name: Epidemiology and Public Health

Abstract

For the last decade the ESRC International Centre for Lifecourse Studies in Society and Health (ICLS) has worked to unite approaches from the social and biological sciences. ICLS's work necessitates a multidisciplinary approach- our team includes researchers with expertise in epidemiology, sociology, biology, statistics, psychology, clinical sciences and demography. Our work looks at how the social circumstances in which people live translate into poor health and unfavourable social outcomes across all stages of the lifecourse - 'how life gets under the skin'. ICLS's work aims to improve understanding about the stepping stones from childhood towards a healthy and productive working life and the maintenance of health and wellbeing in the later years.

During the transition phase the core aims of the Centre are:
- to deliver our scientific programme in 4 areas: child and adolescent health and wellbeing; work and retirement; the social-biological interface; and translational research
- to maximise the impact of the Centre's programme of research
- to build capacity in the quantitative analysis of longitudinal data, and in the communication of findings
Emphasis is given to maximising the impact of our research, past and future, and to fostering impact readiness amongst ICLS researchers.

ICLS has three key strategic priorities;
- to build capacity in the analysis of quantitative longitudinal datasets;
- to bridge the social and biological sciences;
- to extend our international reach.

The UK is renowned for its wealth of studies that collect information on large numbers of people from birth and throughout their lives. However, there continues to be a shortage of scientists with the requisite skills to analyse these complex data. A priority for ICLS continues to be building capacity in this area. We know that the contexts in which people live gets under the skin, but little is known about how this happens - how do social circumstances get into the cells and molecules to cause disease and early death? Our approach helps to develop ideas on how best to combine information collected in longitudinal studies, on social circumstances, psychological characteristics and biological profiles in ways that are theoretically plausible from both social and biological perspectives.

The scientific programme proposed during the transition phase builds on previous ICLS work and is organized around four streams of research.
- Child and adolescent health and wellbeing - here the focus is on the pathways to good health and educational achievements from birth through to adolescence
- Work and retirement - where the health consequences of changing roles of men and women in relation to paid and unpaid work are examined, as are the health consequences of working in 'poor quality' jobs
- The social-biological interface - informing the debate on the utility of using biodata to address questions of interest to the social sciences e.g. does using genetic information add to our understanding of causal relationships?
- Translational elements of ICLS's research - exploring how ICLS's work could be incorporated into interventions and trials.

ICLS's impact activities will build on and extend the successful work undertaken to date which has focused on: i) identifying potential beneficiaries; ii) sharing our research plans and our findings using a range of on and offline platforms; and iii) building relationships and working with groups and individuals to maximise the potential of our work to have impact. In the transition phase, we expect earlier, current and new work to impact even more directly on policy and practice. We expect our policy evidence on good quality jobs to have both economic and societal impact, creating a healthier and more resilient workforce and reducing social inequalities.

Planned Impact

Our impact activities will build on and extend the successful work undertaken to date which has focused on: i) identifying potential beneficiaries; ii) sharing our research plans and our findings using a range of on and offline platforms; and iii) building relationships and working with groups and individuals to co-produce knowledge and maximise the potential of our work to have impact. In the transition phase, we anticipate that the work done to date and the work we plan to do will have even more of a direct influence on policy and practice. We expect our research to have economic impact using our evidence for policy around good quality jobs; and to have societal impact as evidence from our work is used to reduce social inequalities and to help individuals be healthier and more resilient. Impact will be achieved via numerous channels.
Our findings will reach audiences through published journal articles, invited talks and keynote addresses, blogs and social media. Our well-established blogs, Child of our Time and WorkLife and their associated Twitter accounts, will continue to be used as vehicles to share our research findings. We plan to create an online resource (animated slideshow or short film) to explain our unique brand of science and how our physical/biological lives intertwine and interact with our social circumstances.
Much of the research we have undertaken and plan to develop further is highly policy relevant. This provides numerous opportunities to engage with and influence policy makers and the policies they propose and implement. We will build on our excellent track record of contributing to policy through the membership of a range of working groups and committees and delivery of invited talks to Government Departments. We will contribute to calls from Select Committees and for POST briefings. ICLS researchers will engage proactively in relationships and activities that will increase the impact of the Centre's work in policy circles.
Our deliberate approach of creating accessible blogs has paid dividends, helping us engage directly via social media with groups and individuals who can benefit from the work. We have a considerable following on our child health and development blog, Child of our Time, and our WorkLife blog is also expanding its reach.
We will continue working directly with third sector organisations in advisory capacities and will seek to further develop co-productive collaborations. During the transition phase, the work undertaken with groups such as Mentor UK, National Literacy Trust, and the Trade Union Congress will be developed and published, providing excellent opportunities to disseminate findings and engage further with other potential beneficiaries e.g. other groups working with young people around alcohol and drugs, Departments of Health and Education, libraries, the Children's Commissioner, and employees and the self-employed with new types of employment contracts and relations.
Through continued proactive engagement with the media (on and offline) and the setting of our research to meet current policy/practice concerns, we will continue to make a positive contribution to many important topical societal debates. These include: childhood obesity; young people and alcohol; the importance of reading in helping children do better in life; poor quality work; and how we better understand poor mental health across the lifecourse, its causes and consequences. Through targeted media activities such as with health and education correspondents, the Big Issue's #WhyBooksMatter campaign and the Guardian's Inequality Project, we will identify journalists interested in using and sharing research evidence and findings to illustrate their writing/broadcasting, thereby generating quality media coverage of our research that will educate and inform the non-academic audiences we are seeking to engage and influence.

Description Impact report - ICLS Transition funding ICLS research continues to have impact more directly than ever beyond academia. This has been achieved specifically in the areas of policy and practice, where findings have been used to increase the effectiveness of public services and policy and to enhance people's quality of life and health. The Centre has made useful early contributions to our understanding of the impact of COVID19 and hopes to create an even greater legacy and impact through a new proposed ESRC Centre aimed at eradicating health inequalities. Below are some examples of how and where ICLS research is having an impact. Putting a stop to the physical punishment of children In 2020 Scotland became the 60th country in the world and the first in the UK to make it illegal to physically punish a child under the age of 16. This change in the law was made as a direct result of an evidence review produced by UCL researchers including ICLS Director Yvonne Kelly on the damage that the physical punishment of children does to their physical and mental wellbeing. The review, commissioned by three charities in Scotland was used as the basis of the proposed Children (Equal Protection from Assault) Bill in Scotland. The Bill led to the removal of the defence of "reasonable chastisement" which could be used to justify using physical force on a child. Wales is expected to follow suit with a ban on smacking expected to be introduced in 2022. A major follow-up programme of research from the Centre on Adverse Childhood Experiences has shown strong links between being smacked as a child and mental health problems as a teenager, and has added weight to calls for England and Northern Ireland to do the same. A soon-to-be published further narrative review by an international collaboration of experts including Professor Kelly has been commissioned by The Lancet. Adverse Childhood Experiences An ICLS programme of work around Adverse Childhood Experiences has led to extensive engagement with health practitioners, third sector organisations and a collaboration with a Government What Works Centre, the Early Intervention Foundation, which based much of its 2020 report Adverse childhood experiences: what we know, what we don't know and what should happen next on an evidence review from the programme. Ongoing engagement with EIF has led to them agreeing to partner ICLS in its new ESRC Centre proposal to tackle health inequalities. Rebecca Lacey was also nominated by the 20,0000-strong practitioner network Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH) for a Rising Star Award for her work in this area. Protecting children and young people from the dangers of social media In December 2020 the Government announced the UK was leading the way in 'a new age of accountability for social media'. Specifically it has said that tech companies will need to do far more to protect children from harmful content or activity including things like bullying. ICLS work looking at the impacts of screen time and social media use on wellbeing and depression in children and young people fed into major inquiries leading to this policy development. An All Party Parliamentary Group report featured findings and recommendations from the research, specifically on the importance of robust longitudinal research in identifying those most at risk, on the need to look closely at both the content and context of social media use and for better data on reasons for stopping/changing patterns of use. Recommendations from the inquiry based on ICLS evidence included a call on the Government to prioritise the funding of further longitudinal research as a matter of urgency and to update legislation that would oblige social media companies to make data available to researchers. Referring directly to evidence from Professor Yvonne Kelly, the report recommended that PSHE education specifically on the benefits and harms of social media rather than broader screen time is made mandatory for primary and secondary school children in order to support digital resilience. Recommendations from the research on introducing time limits on websites and applications where users can create and share content were also taken on board with the APPG proposing a 2 hours per day limit for those aged 24 and younger. The research was used to brief the UK's Chief Medical Officers and 40 invited representatives from third sector groups and the education and health sectors. Findings, specifically those linking longer periods of social media use with depression and outlining the most influential pathways between the two, were featured in the subsequent commentary from the Chief Medical Officer for England (CMO). Recommendations from the research on the importance of enough, good quality sleep also featured in the CMO's guidance for parents and carers. The research has been a major feature in public health (#ScrollFreeSeptember, Royal Society for Public Health) and media campaigns (Duty of Care, The Telegraph) aimed at raising public awareness around the potential pitfalls associated with heavy social media use, encourage people to reflect on their social media use and to lobby for changes to legislation. This continuing programme of work is making it possible for future generations to enjoy the full benefits of the internet with better protections in place to reduce the risk of harm. Preventing a reversal of the trend towards gender equality ICLS research on the burden of caring during the first COVID-19 lockdown of 2020 fed into a series of recommendations to the Government from the Women's Budget Group for actions in 2021 and led to ICLS Deputy Director Anne McMunn becoming an adviser to the WBG's policy advisory committee. Engagement with the charity around this research has been so positive in 2020 that WBG agreed to be a key partner in ICLS's 2020 ESRC Centre proposal. The research was also used in evidence to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Women and Work's inquiry on The impact of the COVID-19 crisis on women in the workplace. Looked After Children Grown Up One of the most high profile programmes of research during the transition funding phase has been Amanda Sacker's Looked After Children Grown Up which has attracted extensive third sector, policy and media attention. The project received special recognition in the 2020 ONS Research Excellence Awards. Findings have been presented as part of the plenary talk at the CORAM Adoption and Fostering Conference and are currently feeding into the Government's Independent Review of children's social care both through its call for advice and call for evidence. The secretariat of the APPG for adoption and fostering have been briefed by Professor Sacker on the findings from the research and their implications and a response to a call for evidence from the APPG for Looked After Children and Care Leavers' Spotlight Inquiry is being prepared. Securing the future of the free bus pass ICLS research on the health benefits to older people of concessionary travel featured in an evaluation of the impacts of the free bus pass which led to its future being secured. The evaluation was commissioned by the Department for Transport following suggestions that the bus pass should be scrapped to save money. In 2018, the evaluation led to an announcement from the Government that disabled and older people in England would continue to benefit from free bus travel for the foreseeable future. Legislation behind the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme was also amended so that it no longer needs to be reviewed every five years. New policy initiatives around the Good Work Standards and Work as a Health outcome ICLS research was cited in the 2018 Annual Report of the UK Chief Medical Officer who was concerned that "the rise of precarious, poor quality work has created the extraordinary situation where being in poor quality work has been associated with higher levels of allostatic load than peers who remained unemployed". Tarani Chandola was invited by Public Health England to participate in policy discussions led by PHE and the UK Departments of Work and Pensions and Health and Social Care around the "work as a health outcome" programme. This resulted in the 2019 Healthcare Professionals' Consensus Statement on Health and Work, agreed by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, the Royal College of Nursing and the Allied Health Professions Federation. ICLS's contributions to these discussions emphasised the importance of good work, not just any work, in the policy statement. ICLS research was also cited in London Mayor's policies, including the Health Inequalities strategy document, the Mayor's Good Work Standard and the Evidence Base for London's Local Industrial Strategy. These strategies led to the development of the London Healthy Workplace Award, an accreditation scheme to help employers create healthier workplaces. This research has also been used by campaigners for improved job quality (such as the Living Wage Foundation) as evidence of how stressful jobs impact on the health of workers and the need for employers to increase wages to prevent negative health impacts. The Health Foundation, the second-largest endowed foundation in the UK focusing on health, used the research to "shift the debate on health" in their report on the wider determinants of health. Social relationships and ageing collaboration An innovative international collaboration between ICLS, the University of Tokyo and the Centre for Performance Science has compared social and cultural participation in ageing nations (the UK and Japan) in an effort to provide evidence on ageing healthily and happily. As well as engaging more than 100 early career researchers in the UK and Japan around the comparative methods for this type of research, the project team, led by Noriko Cable, has shared important lessons around social isolation and health outcomes with policymakers and third sector groups through its partnership with the International Longevity Centre UK. Autism research adds weight to calls for movement on national strategy ICLS researchers have developed a body of work on autism that has added impetus to calls for a long-promised Government review aimed at improving the lives of autistic children. The research, led by visiting researcher Mariko Hosozawa, provided clear evidence of the need for early diagnosis to enable more timely interventions and support for calls from the National Autistic Society and others for the Government to press ahead with its commitment more than a decade ago to develop a strategy for improving services for autistic adults, underpinned by legally binding guidance to councils. ICLS' Swedish team has also produced further evidence that hypertensive diseases of pregnancy are associated with an increased risk of autistic spectrum disorders and possibly ADHD in children, but not a reduction in general cognitive function without these conditions, suggesting that intrauterine processes are involved in the aetiology of these diseases (or a subset). More evidence of why it's a bad idea for mums-to-be to smoke Research led by Swedish co-I Scott Montgomery provides further evidence for campaigns such as the NHS start 4 life which supports mothers-to-be who want to give up smoking. The research confirms that maternal smoking during pregnancy is a risk for poorer bone health in babies, but that it is limited to the first year of life due to mineralisation of bones as the baby grows. The higher risk of broken bones after the first year is due to familial confounding (BMJ).

Impact Research fed through to this report via the APPG call for evidence - Yvonne Kelly provided oral evidence and had a number of meetings with the RSPH CEO and colleagues to discuss. See email below detains contribution through evidence and in the report/trecommendations Professor Yvonne Kelly, Director ESRC International Centre for Lifecourse Studies in Society and Health, University College London, told the inquiry: "Robust longitudinal research can help to identify who is at risk with the right kinds of data we can look back at what has gone before in people's lives to get a handle on what is happening to them now. To improve understanding of positives as well as negatives we need to have repeated measurements of both their mental health as well as their social media use - as both can and do change. Very useful would be having data on reasons for stopping/changing patterns of use. Also, better data on content and context - what is being consumed (e.g. experiences of online harassment vs positive social connections and self-expression) and what if anything does it displace." Professor Kelly further advocated ideal data sources would be a combination of extant longitudinal study resources in combination with data held by social media companies. The APPG recommends that the UK Government prioritises investment into further research to understand the impact of social media on young people's mental health and wellbeing, and does so as a matter of urgency. In addition, the APPG calls for all social media companies to make any all data, including data that is currently anonymised, available to researchers. It is recommended that legislation is updated to ensure that this data is available. The APPG recommends further research is prioritised into the following areas: - Whether the relationship between social media and mental health problems is one of cause or correlation. - The extent to which the impact of social media varies across different demographics. - Longitudinal research into understanding the impact of social media on young people's mental health and wellbeing. - Defining which design aspects of social media platforms are inherently detrimental to young people's mental health and wellbeing. - Understanding what content is generating helpful or supportive conversations and what content risks being harmful. I have also included: As identified by Professor Yvonne Kelly to the Inquiry, "Looking at a global measure of 'screen time' likely obscures important differential effects for each kind of screen use." Therefore, the APPG recommends that Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is made mandatory for primary and secondary school children in the next parliamentary session and that the PSHE curriculum adequately delivers understanding of the harms and benefits specifically of social media to support digital resilience. And following discussions with the APPG Members, we will be recommending: In the absence further robust longitudinal research and data, taking a precautionary approach, the APPG recommends the Government urgently issues guidance that recommends that social media use, that is use of "websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking", is limited to 2 hours per day for those aged 24 and younger.

Results and Impact People who identify as gay or bisexual have long been known to be more likely than others to be at risk from behaviour which can affect their health, such as drug-taking, drinking and not doing enough exercise. But how does this affect today's teenagers? In an era of greater social liberalism might these differences be disappearing? Professor Yvonne Kelly and Dr Cara Booker discuss new research which sheds light on the issue.

Mental health, social adversity, and health-related outcomes in sexual minority adolescents: a contemporary national cohort study, by Rebekah Amos, Eric Julian Manalastas, Ross White, Henny Bos and Praveetha Patalay, was published in Lancet Child Adolescent Health 2020; 4: 36-45 https://doi.org/10.1016/ S2352-4642(19)30339-6

Results and Impact Successive governments have legislated for increases to the State Pension Age (SPA) as a way to reduce the fiscal impact of an ageing population. Such increases, however, do not happen in a vacuum, and there will be significant implications from a blanket policy encouraging people to stay in work longer. Early exit from the workforce remains an issue in the UK, and the support necessary to help people stay in work up to SPA will have to be extended to a larger pool of people with increases to SPA.

Each day there are three powerful influences affecting the mental health of our youngsters: their families and guardians; their schools and colleges; and social media - a recent and powerful newcomer to the challenges of navigating childhood and adolescence successfully.
