About the Knowledge Hub

The Knowledge Hub contains over 10,000 resources relating to the health and wellbeing of children and young people, and maternal health. It includes key reports and policies, latest research, guidance, case studies, tools, events and news. All resources featured within the Knowledge Hub and across our website are also included in the resources database. All new resources are also featured in one or more of our eBulletins.

To find what you need you can:

  • search in the free text box, or do a more advanced search;
  • use the keyword search box to find all resources relating to a particular topic; or
  • use the advanced search function to search by keyword or phrase, for the actual title of a document, or geographic area covered.

You can choose to search just our website and resources, or across the former network of public health observatories website and all former public health observatory websites (now all part of the Knowledge and Intelligence Teams within Public Health England). You can change and update these options in 'search options'.

The vast majority of resources within the Knowledge Hub are freely accessible and you only need to click the link listed to view the item. However, a small number are only fully accessible through organisational access. Please see 'Accessing Knowledge Hub resources' for more advice.

The Knowledge Hub is constantly under development and new content and features continue to be added. For example, browsable topic areas - Knowledge Hub themes - help you find what you are looking for. We have created Knowledge Hub themes for disability, Europe, maternity, mental health and psychological wellbeing, obesity, safeguarding, workforce and young people (including teenage conceptions, transitions to adulthood, substance use and youth justice) and are working on adding more.

You can also add your own resources to our website (subject to approval) and share your own documents, promote events or tell us about your own website or organisation. Do this by logging in to the website and selecting the 'Contribute' option from the home page. Alternatively, forward details to us - including weblinks to resources or events where possible - and we will do this for you.
