Abstract Introduction: There are many scales and measures of individual wellbeing, but community wellbeing is less well defined. Indicators measuring a community's wellbeing may not be described as such. To address this knowledge gap, the What Works Wellbeing Communities Evidence Programme conducted a rapid scoping review of indicators, frameworks and measures of community wellbeing used by UK agencies in the last 5 years. Methods: Five electronic databases were searched from 2010 - 2016, plus relevant organisations' websites. We included policy documents, evaluations and research studies if they measured community wellbeing in the UK. Electronic search results were uploaded to systematic reviewing software, screened and data extracted by one of five reviewers, with a random 10% double checked. Results: 6,494 records were screened and 47 included, containing 43 indicators currently or recently in use in the UK. Governmental organisations were more likely to use indicator frameworks or sets; non-governmental or academic organisations were more likely to use conceptual frameworks. Academic organisations were the most likely to use validated measures or scales. A wide range of synonyms or proxy terms relating to community wellbeing were used; we have begun to map these against their included domains. Conclusion: This is the first iteration of a working document compiling and indexing UK community wellbeing indicators. The review is intended to grow throughout the life of the What Works Wellbeing Centre; as further measures are identified in systematic reviews or by stakeholder engagement, they will be added. External funding details What Works Wellbeing Centre's Communities Evidence Programme.
