Supporting community recovery and resilience in response to the COVID-19 pandemic: a rapid review of evidence

Glasgow Centre for Population Health

A rapid review of evidence to support community recovery from COVID-19 by broadening the understanding of the wider impacts of the disease and the related disease containment policy. The report aims to demonstrate the types of policy and community responses that may support effective recovery that fosters community resilience. The review is structured around three sections: identifying communities and population sub-groups who are vulnerable or at risk to COVID-19, including the unintended impacts resulting from disease containment policy; the mental health and psychological impacts of COVID-19 and how these can be mitigated as part of community recovery; and the broader potential characteristics of community recovery from the current pandemic and how future resilience can be developed. This includes consideration of research into asset-based approaches, community engagement and participation and resilience and how these can inform community recovery from COVID-19. The report will be of benefit to policymakers and practitioners involved in implementing community-based recovery and support services. It concludes that the process of community recovery should be carefully managed and must involve a flexible, innovative and adaptive approach to support and service delivery. It should also incorporate the views, insights and wisdom of community members and those identified as having additional vulnerability to COVID-19.
