Wellbeing of children in care in England

Coram Voice and the University of Bristol have published a report looking at the views of children in care on their wellbeing. A survey of 611 children aged 4-18 years, across six local authority areas in England finds that: 83% said that being in care had improved their lives; 14% of children in care had scores that suggested low wellbeing, and girls were five times more likely to have low well-being in comparison with boys.
