Wellbeing economics All Party Parliamentary Group

About Wellbeing economics All Party Parliamentary Group

The Centre is secretariat of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Wellbeing Economics. This is an officially recognised cross-party group of MPs and Lords in the UK Parliament.

The group seeks to highlight how wellbeing serves as a valuable and pragmatic framing for making policy decisions and for setting a vision for the UK. Wellbeing draws attention to the diversity and interdependence of issues and interventions that affect us in our lives and the complex and complementary roles that different government departments and policies can play in improving outcomes.

The APPG will therefore play a convening role across parties and government departments and look at different levels of intervention (national – local – individual) to identify where the biggest gains can be made for the lives of people in the UK, drawing on specific examples, challenges and contexts and building on existing knowledge and evidence.
