Model: Different People, Same Place
In partnership with


With the project Different People, Same Place, we explored the relationship between community wellbeing and individual wellbeing.

The work also looked at how this relationship differs for different locations and individuals, and sought to answer the research question: What are the relationships between community wellbeing and the wellbeing of different individuals and identified groups within that community?

As part of the project, the team mapped mechanisms that link community and individual wellbeing, and inequalities, together. The result is the Model of Individual and Community Wellbeing.
