About NPC's Well-being Measure

NPC's Well-being Measure is an online survey-based tool that measures how children feel. It has been fully validated.

It's a practical way of quantifying your impact on a group of ten or more young people aged 11 to 16, by looking at eight aspects of well-being.

You can create your own survey, track its progress, and receive a detailed report of the results. 

By doing a survey at two points in time, you can measure change - and prove the impact of your work.

And it's flexible so you can use it in a way that suits you.

I want to... prove my impact

You probably already have a good idea of whether your project is making a difference in children's lives. But how can you quantify this difference? And how can you tell if it's a lasting change?

Using NPC's Well-being Measure, you can survey the young people you work with at two or more points in time to see if there has been a change in their well-being, and to see if that change is sustained.

I want to... compare different groups of young people

Have you ever wondered if your activities affect young people differently? Perhaps you suspect that girls benefit more than boys. Or that children in one school do better than children in another school.

NPC's Well-being Measure allows you to compare different groups of children within your survey.

For example, you can see whether their gender, or whether or not they receive free school meals, affects well-being.

This information can help you to target your services to the people who need them most, as well as track whether some groups are responding better than others to your work.

I want to... see my results in a national context

We know that organisations struggle to judge how their young people compare to others. NPC's Well-being Measure automatically analyses your results within the context of our national baseline. We also conduct regular analyses of this anonymised baseline data to help you understand trends in well-being for different groups of young people
