Building Attachment in Families and Communities

This research explored the dynamics and drivers of residential mobility and transience; and its impacts on: (a) community attachment among the residents of local communities and the major institutional stakeholders in communities Рpublic and private service providers, community organisations, and local employers and businesses; (b) individual and familial outcomes in relation to: employment, education, health, housing, safety from crime; (c) transitions of young people to adulthood, and (d) community outcomes in relation to the sustainability of the local economy, the public infrastructure and community attachment. This research aimed to identify the mechanisms, processes and relations required to build and sustain community and family wellbeing, optimise attachment in changing communities and address problems arising out of transience and residential mobility.
