There is a large body of evidence showing that living in a deprived neighbourhood is associated with poor health and life chances and there is an expectation that improvement to housing and neighbourhood conditions will improve health, however there is a lack of robust evidence to inform what matters most. In 2005, and in collaboration with colleagues in the Department of Urban Studies at the University of Glasgow and the Glasgow Centre for Population Health, researchers in the Unit designed and implemented a multi-method evaluation (GoWell) to assess the effects of regeneration of a £1.2 billion programme of housing (70,000 homes) and area regeneration (15 neighbourhoods) across Glasgow at the individual, community and city-wide level including the development of an economic evaluation of this complex intervention. This longitudinal study is the largest of its kind in the world in examining how national policy goals related to communities, regeneration and health are achieved at the local level.
