The Integrative Wellbeing research group (iWell) has its ancestry in a previous Research Centre, viz., the Centre of Wellbeing & Quality of Life. The legacy of this centre is a wealth of expertise that can be brought to bear on several key domains of health-related wellbeing, including the development of public health innovations. Furthermore, recent appointments have strengthened the Faculty’s research expertise in areas that are known to influence wellbeing at a fundamental level, such as physical activity and nutrition.
Our inter-disciplinary, and cross-faculty team will undertake research to improve public health and wellbeing at population, community and individual citizen levels. A particular focus has been, and will continue to be, upon low income, disadvantaged and/or marginalised groups. Furthermore, members are committed to the INVOLVE principles for the co-production of research questions with service users.
