Feelings Count: Measuring Children’s Subjective Well-being for Charities and Funders

New Philanthropy Capital (NPC) believes that it is vital for charities to measure their impact. If they do not, the most effective approaches cannot be scaled-up, the least effective cannot be challenged, and the maximum benefit for the children that charities work with cannot be achieved. In order to measure their impact, charities need the right tools at their fingertips. In partnership with The Children’s Society, NPC has developed a questionnaire that will finally allow charities to put a number on a child’s feelings and capture their full impact in a waynever done before.

This report introduces the well-being questionnaire to potential users, including charities and funders. It describes the reasons behind the project, the development of the questionnaire and pilots, the interim findings and plans for launching the questionnaire online in October 2009.
