About Bright Spots

The Bright Spots partnership between Coram Voice and the University of Bristol aims to improve the care experience and well-being of children in care and care leavers by exploring how they feel about their lives. The project is unique as it puts children’s experience and voices at the heart of how we measure success in children’s services.

Through the project we have developed the Bright Spots Well-being Indicators and the Your Life, Your Care (YLYC) and Your Life Beyond Care surveys, which measures them, allowing us to capture children’s care experience and well-being, based on what they say is important. We work with local authorities to use the surveys to identify what is working well and what can be improved. We also enable local authorities to come together to share learning and use the learning from the programme to inform and influence policy and practice nationally.
