The Co-op Community Wellbeing Index is the first measure of community wellbeing at a neighbourhood level across all four nations of the UK.
Our partnership with the Co-operative Group began in 2017 when we delivered research on community wellbeing, feeding into the Index. This work builds on over a decade of work across The Young Foundation exploring wellbeing, happiness and community.
The Co-op developed the Community Wellbeing Index to strengthen its support to the communities it serves through its businesses. The framework aims to inform the actions and decisions of local, organisational and national stakeholders and ultimately drive real improvements in the wellbeing of local communities.
