About the project

Brent Council has been piloting a Community Wellbeing project to help residents struggling with increased costs of living. This involves a Community Shop providing discounted food for a membership fee of £3.50, as well as extensive advice and welfare support provided by Council services and voluntary sector partners.

This policy prototype would test and evaluate what health and wellbeing interventions would make the most impact for members of the Community Wellbeing project. We would carry out engagement with residents who are benefitting from support offered by the Community Wellbeing project to understand what further health and wellbeing support could be offered, via workshops, activities or classes focusing on mental health and physical wellbeing. Subsequently, based on the needs of this group we would test interventions on a small scale and evaluate their impact on improving wellbeing across 6 months.
