Graphic narrativesHealth inequalities and local action
In 2018, a graphic narratives booklet drawn by the artist Joe Decie was produced to share residents’ accounts of the issues that affect health inequalities in local areas. The illustrations also convey how groups of residents involved in Big Local are taking action to improve the conditions that affect health in a neighbourhood, such as improving transport and the environment, and strengthening social relationships.
View the booklet as an online flippable booklet or download as a pdf document.

Read about how the comics have been used in practice in the Social Research Association’s Research Matters magazine (March 2019, p.8).
