Background To The Recommendations Of The Carnegie Roundtable On Measuring Wellbeing In Northern Ireland

 

In 2014, the Carnegie UK Trust convened a Carnegie Roundtable on Measuring Wellbeing in Northern Ireland to explore how the concept of wellbeing can be used to promote social change. After learning from the good practice of many in Northern Ireland and beyond, the Roundtable believes that the time is right to develop a ‘wellbeing framework’ to guide and support the work of all public services in Northern Ireland. The Roundtable’s background report sets out the Roundtable’s deliberations, the seven steps it has identified for developing a wellbeing framework, and ten recommendations in order to implement these steps and to introduce a new, innovative way of delivering public services in Northern Ireland.
