The home of community health creation

Giving communities back their self-belief by creating hopeful futures

C2 is the brand name of a unique and dynamic community engagement programme that has been transforming the health & social status of low-income communities in the UK since 1995.

Described as community health creation*, C2 works by releasing the latent strengths of residents and service providers, to work together as equals to jointly problem solve & improve local conditions. This is highly cost effective and leads to lasting community resilience & self-organisation.

C2 is hosted and partnered by University of Exeter Medical School.

*Health creation is the enhancement in health & wellbeing that occurs when individuals & communities achieve a sense of mastery & control over their own lives & immediate environment”. (H. Stuteley, 2016)
