CommonHealth Assets: a realist evaluation of how community led organisations impact on health, wellbeing and health inequalities

Project Details


The aim of this research is to find out how community organisations’ use of ‘assets based approaches’ improves health and wellbeing, and how that might be different in different contexts. Where we find positive effects we will examine whether those effects can be applied elsewhere (‘scaled up’), and how community organisations can find ways to survive (sustainability).
