#BeeWell is a collaboration between The University of Manchester, The Gregson Family Foundation, and Anna Freud, who, together with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), launched the programme in 2019. 


The #BeeWell programme is delivered in partnership with secondary schools to find out what affects young people’s wellbeing and what can be done to enhance it. Since 2021, we’ve listened to the voices of more than 85,000 young people across Greater Manchester and Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton 


Greater Manchester is where #BeeWell began in 2019 and we continue to have an exceptional response from Greater Manchester’s enthusiastic and proactive young people, who remain at the centre of everything we do.

Our Mission

#BeeWell believes that young people’s wellbeing is as important as their academic attainment.

Using a co-designed survey, we listen to the voices of as many young people as possible; publish the results privately to schools and publicly by neighbourhood; and drive action across society to improve young people’s wellbeing. 

#BeeWell’s Mission is to see this approach implemented nationally by 2030.

What we’ve learnt so far

#BeeWell survey data is published annually at a neighbourhood level, which enables targeted local action that supports young people’s wellbeing.
