'What makes for good community wellbeing? And how can we make communities work for wellbeing?', these are the questions being asked in a new report commissioned by the What Works Centre for Well Being. The report was produced with assistance from a range of scholars and stakeholders, including Ulster's Dr Susan Hodgett who has published widely on the theme.
Drawing on data from Bristol and Belfast, the report examines a series of issues:
- How people define community wellbeing in the context of their own lives.
- Essential elements of a good quality of life at each life stage.
- Community resilience.
- Ways to improve community wellbeing.
- Who can do what to improve community wellbeing?
