Local authorities supporting positive wellbeing and care experiences for the children and young people they look after
The Bright Spots programme is a partnership between Coram Voice and the University of Bristol that aims to improve the well-being of children in care by identifying and promoting practises that have a positive influence on children and young people’s well-being.
The key objectives of the programme are to:
- Understand, from a children in care and care leavers’ perspective, the key elements of well-being and how this compares to children and young people in the general population
- Measure the well-being of children in care and care leavers
- Promote an understanding of what well-being and a positive care experience is for children in care and care leavers
- Identify those local authorities where children and young people have greater well-being
- Deep dive to identify the ‘bright spots’ – the practices and policies that contribute to children and young people’s well-being
- Support local authorities to improve children and young people’s well-being
- Influence national policy to drive improvements in children and young people’s well-being
