The Research Support Funding scheme supported 13 short (six-month) projects that complemented and extended the Centre’s research themes: Transforming Institutions, Transforming Engagement, Transforming Health across the life course and Transforming Relations.
This was an exploratory project, working closely with local communities to understand key elements in healthy, resilient communities and how they result from, and contribute to, individual well-being. The partners looked at four very different places in Devon: coastal community, market town, urban area and rural community, working closely with local people to highlight the differences and similarities among them.
We hope the outcomes of this reflection will help us plan together for future research, and more effectively support community-based initiatives focused on health and well-being.
