The Well - Shared Knowledge for Community Wellbeing
Shared Knowledge for Community Wellbeing
The Well has been developed to provide you with comprehensive, evidence-based information, resources and local wisdom about a range of different health and wellbeing topics relevant to the Eastern Metropolitan Region. Over time we have heard repeated pleas for:
- a common language and understanding around different health and wellbeing topics,
- access to knowledge about what is happening locally,
- a place to share wisdom and expertise and
- a way to connect with others interested in the same topic.
These insights have brought us to where we are today. The Learn, Plan, Share and Connect scaffolding upon which The Well is now built provides us with the infrastructure we need to respond to these pleas. Ultimately, it’s about bringing people together to achieve better health outcomes for the local community.
Our Vision: To grow The Well as the go-to source for a wealth of reliable, contemporary information, local experience and wisdom, contacts and connections for a range of current health and wellbeing topics.
Our Promise: To keep The Well professional, fresh and informative. To encourage collaboration and sharing of local wisdom and expertise and to keeping The Well Community informed, engaged and involved.
Who is The Well for?
The Well has been created for people working in service delivery, project development and health promotion in the Eastern Region, who are keen to work in partnership with others to address some of the most challenging health and social issues we face today.
It gives us a shared way of thinking about the issue we are trying to address, access to contemporary literature and evidence, and knowledge about what is happening locally and other local expertise in our area of interest. It also helps us to see how our work is part of a collective impact in responding to local health or social issues and how it links into the broader state agenda.
