Edinburgh Community Resilience Programme (Reset)

Reset is an intersectoral partnership designed to support health and wellbeing of older people in the city of Edinburgh through increasing community resilience. This vibrant, innovative new programme seeks to tackle “what matters most” to people, enabling more people, and the people who support them, to have “more good days” Irvine-Fitzpatrick 2021, Edinburgh Wellbeing Pact Report. Our aim is to develop and optimise an evidence based, resilience focussed model of community support through mixed methods Participatory Action Research (PAR).
