At the end of last week we held a workshop hosted by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, specifically for their grantees.
In a letter inviting grantees, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation said “The Well-being Measure is an innovative approach for organisations that wish to measure the impact of their work on young people…[It] will enable you to evidence effective interventions, help you track changes over time in the context of a national baseline and allow comparisons to others using the Measure.” These sentiments were echoed in a similar letter from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
The workshop was attended by a range of organisations interested in well-being, including Teens and Toddlers, the Studio Schools Trust, Young Epilepsy and The National Theatre, who got involved in a mixture of presentations, practical demonstration and discussion.
Overall the afternoon was a great success and 100% of the attendees said that it had met their expectations. Further comments from participants included:
“Thank you. Interesting and well run.”
“A very useful workshop – has triggered lots of thinking about how it could be used within my organisation.”
“Very enjoyable and interesting!”
Participants also gave feedback on how we could improve the workshop – suggestions included further information on how to tailor the tool to suit individual organisations and more case studies of organisations that have benefitted.
We’d like to thank all of the grantees for coming along, and to Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Paul Hamlyn Foundation for hosting the event.
