Draft framework for measuring Community Spirit

Last modified date

In December 2018, Royal Society for Public Health in partnership with Locality were commissioned by the Health Foundation to develop and test a framework and indicators to understand and measure community spirit.

This document is the testing prototype of our framework and it draws on existing literature, experts and the views of the public to better understand the factors which make up strong and healthy communities, in particular the facets which make up community spirit.

The framework is intended for any individual, group or organisation with an interest in improving health and/or wellbeing of communities. Whether they are community organisations, commissioners, or community leaders they are all encouraged to use this framework to support their communities.
