Well-Being Framework

Following its work on Ireland’s Well-being Framework: Consultation Report, NESC began a second phase of work to support the development of a comprehensive well-being framework. The first area of work in this phase is:

In the second half of 2022, NESC began work on Equity and well-being frameworks:

  • The Government’s First Report on a Well-being Framework for Ireland argued that ‘an important use of the Well-Being framework will be to facilitate a more systematic identification of specific groups within society that experience inequality across a number of dimensions’ (p.17).

Therefore NESC will consider how a well-being framework could support a deeper and fresh understanding of the factors that lead to inequality and disadvantage in Ireland, and how to break the pattern of continuing and inter-generational inequity. This work will also explore some of the vulnerabilities and inequalities which became more evident during the pandemic.
