Behaviour change: guides for national and local government and partners

6 November 2020

The newly published guides are for national and local government and partners, such as the NHS, emergency services and third sector, to support people to have healthier behaviours.

Based on the Behaviour Change Wheel framework, these guides can be used to help:

  • develop behaviour change interventions from scratch
  • build on or modify existing interventions
  • choose from existing or planned interventions

These guides provide a framework for understanding behaviour in its context and developing interventions and policies to change behaviour.

They can be used flexibly according to need and circumstance, rather than necessarily following a fixed sequence of steps. They introduce tools and provide case examples for each of these processes which can be used all together or as required during the development process.
