Established in 2014, the What Works Centre for Wellbeing is an independent collaborating centre with an aim to improve wellbeing and reduce misery in the UK. We believe that this is the ultimate goal of effective policy and community action.

In open and transparent conversation with the wider sector we have built a reputation as a leading authority on wellbeing, establishing wellbeing evidence that can be used robustly, consistently and with confidence in the UK and globally.

Our annual reports provide a narrative summary of our activity, impact and finances for each financial year, detailing our ambitious programme of work as we continue in our mission to find out what works to improve wellbeing and partner to put that evidence into action, creating conditions for us all to thrive.
