‘Valuing Improvements in Mental Health’

15/03/2018

A call for Partner organisations to develop an online tool measuring impact of changes to mental health.

Housing Associations help thousands of tenants and residents to better mental health. It is now possible to measure and understand these improvements using the wellbeing valuation method. WEMWBS’ growing popularity as a practical measure of impact is driven by both its academic rigour and its credibility with and relevance to health audiences – increasingly important as local funding and delivery partners.

HACT are now looking for organisations to join Catalyst Housing Association (currently piloting the new values) and work with us to build a slick and simple online calculator website so these values can be easily applied.

HACT’s Social Value Bank has become the default approach to social impact measurement in the housing sector and HACT’s ongoing work has secured its position as a thought-leader in this area.

These new vales broaden the resources HACT has made available to enable a deeper understanding of the impact of community interventions to housing providers and others working with communities.
