What Works Centre for Wellbeing_Making the Case for Wellbeing @whatworksWB

The aims of the recently launched What Works Centre for Wellbeing are to understand what national and local governments, voluntary and community sector and businesses, can do to increase wellbeing and to shorten the distance between decision makers and the best available evidence on wellbeing.

Listening to what our users want and understanding their needs is fundamental to making this happen.

That’s why we’ve got together with colleagues in Doncaster to organise an event where we will share what we are doing, what’s happening in Doncaster and most importantly, shape how we can work together.

This event will be useful for wellbeing practitioners and decision makers across the VCS , local authorities and Health and Wellbeing boards, along those evaluating approaches.
