Approaches to Community Resilience
This report develops our understanding of community resilience. It gathers evidence from multiple sources and makes good practice in what works in building community resilience easily accessible. Increasing community resilience supports the delivery of a key part of the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act (2014) (the Act). This and the Well-being and Future Generations Act (2015) (Future Generations Act) offer the potential for a strong co-ordinated approach to improve the wellbeing and resilience of communities across sectors in Wales.
