Bright Spots: the subjective wellbeing of looked after children

Bright Spots is an action research project that aims to give local authorities (LAs) a better understanding of the needs of children they look after.

The project is delivered in partnership with Coram Voice ( a children’s rights charity) who lead the work.

Bright Spots is an anonymous online survey for looked after children aged 4-18yrs. Each year LAs opt into the surveys and commission work, commit to dissiminating the results, and producing action statements on how they will respond to the feedback from their children.
