This chapter examines the WarmNeighbourhoods® AroundMe™ project which utilised a Co-Creation approach to develop a consumer-focused well-being service as an example of how design research methods can address issues centred around well-being. It considers the concept of Co-Creation, the inclusive involvement of users and key stakeholders combined with technological innovation to stimulate the development of creative and innovative ideas grounded in user need. The chapter offers broader insights into the use of assistive technology, providing a critical consideration of the current move towards solutions based on assistive technology in supporting well-being.
