#BeeWell Wednesday: January Newsletter

Welcome to our first newsletter of 2024!

We are excited to work with you again on all things #BeeWell. Read to the end for our yearly round-up for 2023.

January updates:

  • #BeeWell schools will soon receive their data dashboards and follow-up support from the Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC) at Anna Freud.
  • In late March 2024, we will be publishing the new headline #BeeWell findings.
  • At the same time, we’ll publish brand new data via the public neighbourhood dashboards for both Greater Manchester and Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton.


Sign-up for sessions to discuss the future of #BeeWell in Greater Manchester 

Our evaluation partner, Renaisi, is hosting two virtual sessions for our partners to share their feedback and thoughts on the future of #BeeWell in Greater Manchester. The partner sessions will complement broader evaluation work with other stakeholders including schools and young people.
As #BeeWell extends delivery in GM, these feedback sessions will help us ensure the programme is as useful as possible for our partners in future years. We would be thrilled if you wanted to sign-up for one of the partner sessions (the content will be the same for both – you only need to attend one!), using the following links:
