This short handbook on measuring well-being is produced by the Centre for Wellbeing at NEF with input from NEF Consulting.

By measuring the well-being, information can be gathered which can be used, for example, to improve the design and delivery of projects and services, to target projects and services at the people who are in most need, and to tailor provision to suit needs.

This handbook provides:

  • Tools for thinking about well-being and its measurement. These will help to ensure that when you measure people’s well-being, you do so from an informed position. Part I of this handbook is Understanding Well-being.
  • Part II describes recommended practical tools for measuring well-being: this will help you to get measuring!
  • Part III provides guidance on analysis and interpretation, building on NEF’s experience of working with dozens of organisations to undertake impact evaluation projects
