Well North, of which we are a pilot site (or “Pathfinder”) in the form of Well Doncaster, recently published their first progress report. It is an innovative approach to creating better health and wellbeing through a vibrant and connected community, living in a pleasant environment. It involves tackling debt, lack of jobs and training, missed education opportunities, poor housing, and loneliness. Being creative, having fun and joining up the dots are seen as the keys to success to help transform neighbourhoods into dynamic communities where local people can live, work and thrive.
An interactive digital version of the report is available at http://www.wellnorth.co.uk/about-us/read-our-story-so-far. Pages 6 to 9 introduce what is happening locally in Denaby Main.
