Children in care and care leavers

Research in Practice has published a report about the Bright Spots Programme, a partnership project between Coram Voice and the University of Oxford focusing on children in care and care leavers. The report analyses the views of 9,472 children in care and 4,280 care leavers. Key findings include: 97% of younger children aged four to seven years and 95% aged eight to ten years felt they were doing well in care, whereas wellbeing decreased as children got older, with 84% of young people in care (11 to 18 years) recording moderate to high wellbeing. Calls for local authorities to shift their focus to designing services with a clearer
focus on children and young people’s wellbeing.
