GoWell: Studying Change in Glasgow's East End is a five-year, mixed methods research programme, designed to evaluate the impacts of regeneration and other changes associated with the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games upon the health and wellbeing of communities in the East End of Glasgow.

The study has been commissioned by the Scottish Government, NHS Health Scotland and sportscotland. It forms part of the Scottish Government's Commonwealth Games Legacy Evaluation Programme. 

Like the main GoWell study, this study has many components and will collect different types of data. This includes three community surveys at two-yearly intervals: pre-Games (2012), immediately after the Games themselves (2014), and post-Games (2016); qualitative research with residents; and stakeholder discussion groups.

Report One: Headline Indicators presents findings from the first wave of data collection in 2012. These relate to each of the four Scottish Government Evaluation Themes: Active, Flourishing, Sustainable and Connected. Where possible, the report includes comparisons with national benchmarks for indicators under these four themes.
