What is Community Wellbeing? Conceptual review

What is Community Wellbeing? Conceptual review


This conceptual review pulls together thinking and practice on how to think about and assess community wellbeing.

The primary purpose is to stimulate greater attention and debate to what we are terming ‘being well together’ and how to develop a conceptualisation of community wellbeing.

We envisage two audiences for this review: an academic-oriented audience with an interest in concepts, which may well include policy-makers, and a practitioner or community activist audience with an interest in the potential value of assessing community wellbeing for particular purposes.
