Wellbeing – What exactly is included when we say ‘Wellbeing’?

Wellbeing’ Noun: a good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterised by health, happiness, and prosperity; welfare: to influence the well-being of the nation and its people.

At Crowdfunder we have key partners that can provide extra money for projects that help to deliver ‘well being’ to their communities. We have come to notice that many people are doing some fantastic projects in this area but don’t realise that they are part of the wellbeing community.
