BMG Research has recently been commissioned to conduct the latest wave (Wave 4) of the GoWell research project. GoWell is a large scale research and learning programme investigating the impact of investment in housing, regeneration and neighbourhood renewal on health and wellbeing over a ten-year period.
The project is a collaborative partnership between multiple organisations: Glasgow Centre for Population Health, the University of Glasgow and the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit and is sponsored by Glasgow Housing Association, the Scottish Government, NHS Health Scotland and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
This wave of the programme will involve face to face interviews with approximately 4500 households in specified study areas. Having conducted the previous three waves, BMG Research is well placed to use its knowledge of the area and project objectives to deliver a fourth successful project. The overall aims of the project are to measure the medium term outcomes (up to 9 years) of different types of regeneration for the communities involved and to establish how the outcomes for individuals have changed over time.
