Well Communities provides a framework for communities and local organisations (public, private and third sector) to work together to improve health and wellbeing, build resilience and reduce inequalities. Key concepts in engaging communities for social change and health improvement are integral to the Well Communities approach. These include whole systems, holistic and assets-based working, community engagement and community led action, community development and capacity building, co-production, positive psychology and empowerment. Through work over nine years with 33 of the most disadvantaged neighbourhoods in London, these concepts have been translated into a practical framework for action
