New project – Embedding Wellbeing in Northern Ireland

The Carnegie UK Trust has launched its new project Embedding Wellbeing in Northern Ireland.
As you may know, the Carnegie Roundtable on Measuring Wellbeing in Northern Ireland contributed to the development of the wellbeing outcomes approach in the draft Programme for Government. The Trust is keen to continue its work in Northern Ireland and believes that working with stakeholders at local government level presents a significant opportunity to support them to bridge the gap between the aspirations for Northern Ireland and the outcomes for local people. 
The Trust’s new project will now offer significant financial and in-kind support for up to three Community Planning Partnerships in Northern Ireland to implement a local wellbeing outcomes approach. The project will support the participating Community Planning Partnerships to overcome challenges which they have identified as a priority, and help to align their work with draft Programme for Government outcomes framework.
As part of a three year programme, a peer-to-peer support model will be developed to allow the Community Planning Partnerships to learn from each other and that of international best practice in addressing similar challenges, and to share this with other local authorities in Northern Ireland and beyond.
The Trust is asking you to:
  • Download the project leaflet and let give your thoughts and comments on how it can support Community Planning Partnerships to improve local wellbeing outcomes
  • Share the project with any of your colleagues, stakeholders or networks who you think may find it useful or interesting
  • Share the project leaflet and infographic on social media mentioning @CarnegieUKTrust and using #NIwellbeing to join in the debate on how it can work together to improve wellbeing at a local level.
