Health and wellbeing

The following examples suggest ideas to help you create a culture and sport outcomes framework for health and wellbeing. You don't need to be constrained by them; you can refer to the examples as much or as little as you want and adapt the framework.

Your framework will be able to contribute to:

  • The requirements of the Public Health Outcomes Framework, which sets out the desired outcomes for public health and how these will be measured.
  • Support the joint strategic needs assessment. The Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007 requires PCTs and local authorities to produce a joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA) of the health and wellbeing of their local community.
  • Your local health and wellbeing strategy.

The Outcomes Frameworks consist of four elements:

  • Outcomes triangle
  • Logic model
  • Evidence
  • Performance indicators.

Outcomes triangle

The outcomes triangle gives an overview of how culture and sport can contribute to better outcomes for health and wellbeing. This example suggests local outcomes at service, intermediate and overarching strategic outcome levels.

Logic model

The logic model illustrates the main links between service activities and local outcomes. This example suggests broad groupings of activities, benefits of culture and sport to individuals, communities and places, and how these in turn contribute to the achievement of intermediate and overarching strategic outcomes.

The evidence section of the framework underpins the outcomes triangle and logic model. It lists the sources of evidence that together best demonstrate the contribution of culture and sport to the outcomes.

You can supplement your local evidence from the suggested examples of validated national and international evidence or by searching the suggested databases.

Performance indicators

The set of performance indicators (PIs) is how you measure the contribution of culture and sport to local outcomes. This example suggests performance indicators to help you select a ‘basket' of indicators appropriate to your own area, using a ‘pick-and-mix' approach.
