The Quality of Life Foundation has been set up to explore ways in which we can improve people’s quality of life by making wellbeing central to the way we create and care for our homes and communities. Quality of life can be understood to mean ‘the level to which individuals may feel their lives to be happy, active, sociable, interesting and meaningful’.

URBED have been working with the QoLF Board since the summer of 2020, helping to collate the study into a framework under 6 main themes:  Nature, Wonder, Health, Movement, Belonging and Control.

The framework document has been influenced by a range of viewpoints over the course of its development, and is progressing towards publication in the new year, with aims to be accessible for all types of reader.
