In Summer 2010, the Young Foundation worked with Wiltshire County Council to develop new approaches to improve wellbeing and transform service delivery by removing the duplication that can arise where citizens interact with multiple agencies.

The Young Foundation worked with community members, local service providers and vulnerable families in Bemerton Heath, a housing estate in Salisbury. Our work assessed levels of wellbeing as well as the capacity of the community to enhance their own wellbeing and to support vulnerable families on the estate.

This report sets the findings from our work and includes recommendations on how the community and service providers can meet this ambitious agenda and about how the learning can be applied to other areas of Wiltshire.
