How to improve wellbeing?

It starts first with measuring wellbeing, which the UK’s Office of National Statistics (ONS) does on an annual basis, and has done since 2011. 

It is also about how we work together – across government, business, charities and our communities – at what really improves people’s lives in a sustainable way.

Evidence Knowledge Bank

Between 2016 and 2018, the Centre completed 16 systematic reviews on wellbeing and culture and sport, work and learning and community wellbeing.

From this work, we created an interactive, searchable knowledge bank which consolidates the findings, evidence statements and gaps from the reviews.

Explore the knowledge bank here.
