Community resilience is ‘the capacity of communities to respond positively to crises …. to adapt to pressures and transform.

This piece of work was commissioned by Champs (the Cheshire & Merseyside Public Health collaborative). The aim is to identify and describe different models/ approaches to developing resilient communities and to assess their effectiveness. The approaches identified are summarised here. The full report also includes a comprehensive selection of case studies and a set of recommendations. A literature review was carried out, with searches of various databases, grey literature and information obtained via peer review and from stakeholders. The literature review confirmed that the wider impacts of approaches to building community resilience are difficult to measure and evidence is limited. However, the available evidence is broadly supportive of the potential of such approaches to achieve wider outcomes such as those identified in the report.
