Event description
This workshop has been specifically designed for small to medium-sized charities seeking to gain a better understanding of wellbeing.

About this Event

Designed for small to medium-sized charities and social enterprises seeking to gain a better understanding of wellbeing, what their wellbeing impact is on the people they support and why it is worth measuring it.

This free workshop for 15-25 people will cover ‘understanding wellbeing’ and ‘measuring wellbeing’.

Sessions include:

  • What is wellbeing and what matters?
  • What does wellbeing mean in your context?
  • How can the evidence help design better projects?
  • Case studies from different sectors
  • How to measure wellbeing and start to plan an evaluation

This is a unique workshop developed for the VCSE sector.

Outcomes

By the end of the workshop delegates will have a good understanding of:

  • what is meant by wellbeing and what affects it
  • how to make a difference through charitable activities;
  • how to use the evidence to design better projects
  • how to measure wellbeing impacts and communicate results.

Who should attend?

This beginner's workshop is ideal for people who:

  • work for a small or medium-sized charity or social enterprise
  • want to understand if and how your activities affect the wellbeing of the people you support
  • are responsible for reporting, evaluation or impact
  • have not measured wellbeing very much or at all yet and need some guidance on how to get started.

Who runs this?

This workshop is lead by Ingrid Abreu Scherer, Wellbeing and Civil Society Lead at the What Works Centre for Wellbeing. She works with charities, community organisations, funders and policy makers to design activities that help people and communities to thrive.

She encourages evaluations that capture the wellbeing impacts of activities, and develops practical tools and resources to help communities learn from their experience and build the evidence on what works to improve wellbeing.

She is co-founder and chair of trustees of The Mill, an asset-based community development project in East London

The What Works Centre for Wellbeing is part of the What Works network.

The Centre brings together the evidence about the relative impacts on wellbeing of policies and projects, their cost and the quality of the evidence. The Centre is independent of government with a clear and relevant policy and delivery focus.
