This comparison tool shows where there is evidence of a positive or a negative impact. We do not yet have evidence in this format to show which actions have greater impact relative to others. You can find a full list of our evidence reviews, briefings and other resources in evidence+resources.

Using the table

You can sort by cost, impact and evidence strength.

Cost

This is the cost per person, based on a case study where we have information.

Note that the Centre IS working torwards developing cost effectiveness estimates – i.e. cost FOR EACH INCREMENT OF wellbeing benefit. This will be available later in the year.

Evidence strength

Please see source briefings for more on the evidence confidence key.
