It is increasingly recognised that economic growth is only one element of social progress.
Since 2010 the Trust has been involved in the developing field of measuring and understanding wellbeing. We are leading advocates for wellbeing frameworks which allow governments at all levels to measure social progress and outcomes for citizens in a meaningful way.
Taking a wellbeing approach to public policy is about far more than measurement however. We have worked in partnership with Oxfam Scotland, the Scottish Government and the OECD to understand and promote ways of using wellbeing to develop and evaluate policies for wellbeing.
