In October last year (2015) we started sending a form to children and young people to ask them what they think about the social care support they get.
We asked children and young people if the support they have and activities they do
- Helps to make new friends
- Helps them to have fun
- Helps to learn new things
- Helps to build on skills they already have
- Help with feeling more confident
- Help spend time away from family
- Help with getting out and about where they live
We also asked about the sort of things children and young people are doing and what they like and don’t like about them.
96 young people returned the form which was more than last time.
Thank you to everyone who answered the questions, told us what they think and drew pictures.
We are pleased that nearly all the children and young people said the support they get and the things they are doing helps them in these areas.
There is an impressive range of things that children and young people said they are doing and we are pleased to see also that some young people feel the support and things they are doing helps them to develop and learn new things. We will do another summary in April 2017.
