Improving wellbeing through evidence-informed policy

Measuring Children’s Wellbeing

Tuesday 18th December 2018
Chair: Chris Ruane

This meeting is an opportunity to review why measuring children’s wellbeing is important and what impact a systematic approach could have on policy making. It will then explore why we do not yet systematically measure the wellbeing of children.

Participants will discuss the strength of the case for measuring children’s wellbeing and what would help move measurement, as well as policy and practice forward for the UK to invest in better childhoods.

Speakers include

  • Gill Main, University of Leeds
  • Emma Rigby, Association of Young People’s Health
  • Karen Newbigging, University of Birmingham (standing in for Paul Burstow, Mental Health Policy Commission)
  • Leon Feinstein, Children’s Commissioner
  • Richard Crellin, The Children’s Society
