After five years of collaborating, consolidating, and building the evidence on what works to improve wellbeing, in 2020 we are increasing our support for organisations taking evidence-informed action to improve wellbeing.
New research and opportunities
We will be announcing the successful secondary data analysis projects – funded by the ESRC and AHRC – which we’ll be working on with leading researchers from universities across the UK.
The research collaboration with the Bennett Institute for Public Policy at Cambridge University will be running throughout 2020, and we’ll be sharing updates.
Research in progress
We will be publishing a report that looks at wellbeing five years on from the the Commission on Wellbeing and Policy in 2014. With new insight, based on the evidence, it offers clarity on how wellbeing can sit at the heart of policy.
Evidence reviews, analysis, and guidance
An evaluation of a place-based wellbeing intervention run by Action for Happiness using recognised measures.
We’re revamping our Brief Guide to Measuring Loneliness, and we’ll be sharing a survey for your experiences using the recommended loneliness measures.
Invitations to tender
Rapid evidence assessment on evaluations of wellbeing
Rapid evidence assessment on volunteering and wellbeing
Events and training
We’re celebrating five years as a What Works Centre with a look at the key findings, provocations, and future research projects on 12 February in Westminster.
Our fully-booked workshops for small- and medium-sized charities across the UK will be taking place throughout 2020.
Plus more to come.
