The Well-being Framework for Ireland is being jointly sponsored by my Department, the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and the Department of Finance.

The First Report on this was approved by Government and published in July. It will help us to consider, understand and measure Ireland’s progress more holistically through the recovery and beyond.

A follow-up phase of consultation and engagement on the initial Framework is currently underway. This ‘Public Conversation’ on the well-being initiative was launched on the 26th of October to create awareness, gain feedback on the framework, and to get a broader sense of people’s priorities.

Key elements of this conversation include:

- an online survey targeting a wide audience;

- thematic workshops; and

- a large online stakeholder event, on 17th November.

A Government well-being portal has also been developed alongside the CSO’s interactive dashboard.

A follow up report will be submitted to Government in early 2022, informed by this Public Conversation and broader ongoing work. This second report will also identify steps for fully embedding the Framework within the policy-making process.

Questions Nos. 27 to 54, inclusive, resubmitted.
