The Brief

The Carnegie UK Trust has been actively involved in promoting wellbeing in policy since the establishment of the first Carnegie Roundtable on Measuring What Matters in Scotland in 2010. Since 2011 we have published case studies of how governments and civil society organisations measure wellbeing in France, the USA, and Canada; made recommendations on next steps for the Scottish National Performance Framework; funded a policy assessment tool which uses wellbeing indicators to critique policy proposals; set out steps for developing a wellbeing framework in Northern Ireland; produced guidance on wellbeing frameworks for cities and regions; and convened an international roundtable discussion on the successes and challenges of developing high-level strategies based on wellbeing and translating this to policy action.

In early 2019 we published Wellbeing in a Devolved Context, open access through Palgrave Macmillan.
