We are listening to Children in Care
A survey called ‘Your Life, Your Care’ will be live from Monday 27th February until Friday 24th March, for all children in care to let us know their thoughts and feelings about their lives.
As part of our on-going commitment to improve outcomes for children and young people in care, we are working with Coram Voice and the University of Bristol on a programme called Bright Spots, which aims to better understand how the well-being and care experience of children in care can be improved.
A survey called ‘Your Life, Your Care’ will be distributed to all children in care in Gloucestershire aged between 4-16yrs, to ask them about their lives, their thoughts and feelings, the people they know, the chances they get and about being in care.
Children and young people will ideally complete the survey in school with their Designated Teacher or a trusted adult, and it should take no longer than 5-10 minutes. All information will be anonymous and confidential.
Live links to the survey for each age group (4-7yrs, 8-11yrs, secondary school age+) will be available through each child’s Designated Teacher.
This is great opportunity to independently hear the views of children in care, and to better understand how they perceive their care, well-being, the people they know, their rights and the chances they get. This valuable information will help us all to improve our support and services.
Letters with further information and the live links to the survey will be sent to Designated Teachers in schools.
