What works for community wellbeing: a public debate
The public hearings brought together stakeholders from universities, statutory health organisations, local
government, politicians, the voluntary, community, and social enterprise sector (VCSE), and the public. The
hearings used deliberative methods to consider and debate a range of evidence on what works for wellbeing –
from academic research through to front line experience. They each included presentations of evidence from
the Community Wellbeing Evidence Programme and from professional practice, responses and questions
from an expert enquiry panel, and group deliberation and discussion.
