The Bright Spots Programme is a partnership between Coram Voice and the University of Oxford, funded by the Hadley Trust. It supports local authorities to systematically listen to their children in care and care leavers, about the things that are important to them.

How does Bright Spots work?

Bright Spots has three underlying principles:

  • Focus on what children and young people say about their lives and what is important to them
  • Ensure the views and experiences of children influence service development and strategic thinking
  • Share good practice between local authorities by encouraging opportunities for learning and development
