We’d love you to get involved in using or promoting the Thriving Places Index. Here are some ideas for how to get started.
As an individual
Why not share your local authority’s scores on social media? You could also use the results to email your local councillor or MP about the changes you’d like to see in your area. Remember to tag us or follow our other social channels.
If you’re interested in exploring wellbeing further as an individual then you could try taking your Happiness Pulse, our wellbeing measurement survey. You’ll get instant results that will show you ‘how you’re doing’ and how you could take action to improve your wellbeing.
As an organisation
If you’re an organisation working in a particular sector, you might find the Thriving Places Index a helpful way of comparing conditions for wellbeing in different local authority areas and to understand what policies make the most impact for your sector.
You could also use it in conjunction with the Happiness Pulse, our simple to use wellbeing measurement survey. The Happiness Pulse is a quick and easy way to collect authoritative subjective wellbeing data which you can use to report on your wellbeing or social impact.
Using the Happiness Pulse and the Thriving Places Index gives you a comprehensive insight into how your service users or participants are doing, showing you both what the conditions on the ground are in your area, and how your work or project impacts people’s wellbeing.
If you’d like to share the TPI through your social media channels please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to send some social media assets to use.
As a local policy decision maker or commissioner
We’d love to hear from you if you are interested in using the TPI at a local authority level. Please see Using the TPI
and Support for using the TPI
for more detail about how Happy City can help you to make the most of the TPI data.
