This report presents findings from research to evaluate two health, work and well-being initiatives set up following the 2008 review by Dame Carol Black into the health of the UK working age population. The first initiative was the appointment of Health, Work and Well-being Co-ordinators in Scotland, Wales and the nine English Regions and the second was the Health, Work and Well-being Challenge Fund to provide funding for initiatives to improve workplace health and welfare. This study explored the perceived impact of the projects on health and work practices and on the health, work and well-being agenda, as well as their long-term sustainability. The evaluation included qualitative research with the Co-ordinators and senior public health officials, surveys of businesses and Challenge Fund award holders, and case studies of a selection of Challenge Fund award holders.
