Our services

We find out what works to improve wellbeing. By creating and sharing research, we make robust wellbeing evidence available and uncover what is not yet known.

As a collaborating Centre, we work with academia and the research community, governments, policymakers and businesses.

Below are some of the ways we can help further your wellbeing efforts.

Who we help

Our evidence reviews, analysis, and guidance focus on:

  • Placing wellbeing evidence at the heart of policy
  • Joint decision-making
  • Using local indicators to improve local areas
  • Supporting local authorities on strategies for improving wellbeing

We offer a number of services, tools and resources for central and local governments to help ensure good governance for wellbeing. This includes policy recommendations, Treasury’s Green Book Wellbeing Guidance training for analysts and economists, and convening experts to solve specific challenges.

Our workplace wellbeing work to date focuses on the effectiveness of the wellbeing strategies put in place by organisations and evaluates whether they are adding value, having a positive or negative effect and are cost effective.

We review these activities to ensure that they are safe, well intentioned and effective, and not simply a form of ‘wellbeing-washing’. We provide support, guidance, learning and measurement tools to support your organisations work.

Knowledge transfer and learning

Providing training and educating to organisations, leaders and teams about what works to improve wellbeing is core to what we do. As a vast field which affects all aspects of life and society, there are many aspects and areas to dive in to. We provide workshops and training which is tailored to individual needs, ranging from workplace wellbeing to policy design and using the Treasury’s Green Book Wellbeing Guidance.
