Bright Spots: the subjective wellbeing of looked after children

The Bright Spots programme supports local authorities to systematically listen to their children in care and care leavers, about the things that are important to them.

The project is a partnership between the Rees Centre and Coram Voice ( a children’s rights charity) who lead the work.

Bright Spots are anonymous online surveys for children in care and care leavers. Local Authorities opt into the surveys each year -they commission work, commit to disseminating the results and produce action statements on how they will respond to the feedback from the children and young people in their care.
