Abstract

This Report comprises Volume 1 of the Community Wellbeing Stream’s work between 2015 and 2017. The key aims of the Community Wellbeing Stream project are to investigate community perceptions of:
1. the impact of the smoke event on community wellbeing,
2. the elements that are important for effective communication during and after the smoke event, and
3. the effectiveness of community rebuilding activities.
This report focuses on the first two of these three aims:
determining the community perceptions of the impact of the smoke event on community wellbeing
and the elements that are important for effective communication during and after the smoke event.
The third aim will be addressed in a second volume: Community Wellbeing Report Volume 2: Perceptions of the Effectiveness of Community Rebuilding Activities
