This study has two main objectives. The first is to determine the level of need and well-being among parents, children and neighbourhoods based on a representative sample of Respond! housing estates. The second is to determine the factors which influence the well being of parents, children and neighbourhoods in these estates. Both objectives, in turn, are designed to contribute to the overall strategy of Respond! by providing a robust assessment of need which can be used as a baseline against which to set targets and measure progress. In addition, the study aims to assist in the development of strategies which promote different types of well-being by analysing the factors associated with each. In other words, the data and analysis generated through this study is designed to assist Respond! in both reflecting on, and strengthening, the overall vision which has supported its activities over the past 25 years.
