Measure What Matters

The Carnegie Roundtable on Measuring Wellbeing in Northern Ireland, a partnership project between the Carnegie UK Trust and The School of Law at Queen’s University Belfast, is meeting throughout 2014 to consider how Northern Ireland can put the concept of wellbeing at the heart of government. The Roundtable is now inviting submissions to its work from interested parties.

The launch of the high-level Roundtable comes following the publication of the Trust’s Measuring Wellbeing in Northern Ireland: A new conversation for new times discussion paper which looks at how a focus on wellbeing could drive social change, improve public services, and improve outcomes for citizens and communities.

The Roundtable is keen to receive input from a wide range of stakeholders. Individuals and organisations are therefore invited to address one or more questions and themes on the priority challenges for wellbeing in Northern Ireland; how wellbeing can inform a shared narrative across all communities; and how an outcomes based approach could be embedded in government at all levels of Northern Ireland.

Responses will be compiled and summarised alongside those from stakeholder meetings and focus groups in Northern Ireland and will be presented to the Roundtable at its next meeting. Responses should be emailed to by Monday 2 June. Please provide your name and organisation, if applicable, and contact details should we wish to clarify any of your remarks.

To discuss the call for evidence or the work of the Carnegie Roundtable on Measuring Wellbeing in Northern Ireland further please contact Lauren Pennycook, Policy Officer at or on 01383 721445, John Woods, Carnegie Associate at or Peter Doran, Carnegie Associate at
