Free Workshops For Charities: Understand And Measure Wellbeing

Charities, especially small- and medium-sized ones, want to measure what matters. Funding bodies are increasingly asking for measures that capture real impact, beyond traditional outcomes. Wellbeing is now widely recognised as an evidence-informed, established approach to understanding how your service, project or programme makes a difference.

But what does wellbeing look like in your context? And where do you start when it comes to measuring it? At the Centre we are committed to supporting voluntary sector organisations to understand, improve and measure wellbeing. 

Supported by the National Lottery Community Fund, What Works Wellbeing are pleased to announce a programme of free workshops around the country designed specially for small to medium-sized charities, starting in February 2020. Please let them know on your registration form if you would like to find out how they can cover your travel expenses.


These workshops will cover wellbeing concepts and evidence, how to use evidence to improve your activities, and recommended measures for wellbeing evaluations and is ideal for you if you:

  • work for a small or medium-sized charity or social enterprise 
  • want to understand if and how your activities affect the wellbeing of the people you support
  • are responsible for reporting, evaluation or impact
  • have not measured wellbeing very much or at all yet and need some guidance on how to get started.
