Your health and wellbeing matters! The Be Well survey was developed to measure factors that are important to quality of life. It includes questions about health but also about social connections, sense of belonging and inclusion, leisure time, democratic engagement and the environment.
The Be Well survey will help us to identify areas, where wellbeing is lower so that service providers can determine how to change or adapt services offered to better meet client/community needs. The results can also assist in identifying strengths in wellbeing and in services that are already offered in the community.
During the spring and summer of 2017, Unison conducted the survey in the the community around our Jane St. Hub (Weston, Mount-Dennis and Brookhaven-Amesbury neighbourhoods). We are currently in the process of analyzing the survey results and expect to begin sharing results later in the fall.
