GoWell was a research and learning programme that aimed 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 allowed us to examine a range of housing, neighbourhood, and health-related factors before, during and after changes took place.
The programme aimed 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.
