GoWell is a research and learning programme that aims to investigate the impact of investment in housing, regeneration and neighbourhood renewal in Glasgow on the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities.
Established in 2005, and planned as a ten-year programme, the study design allows us to examine a range of housing, neighbourhood, and health-related factors before, during and after changes take place.
The programme aims to establish the nature and extent of these impacts, to learn about the relative effectiveness of different approaches, and to inform policy and practice in Scotland and beyond.
