This video is an extract from a Coram Voice webinar called ‘Listening to the voices of children in care with the Bright Spots surveys’ that was aimed at Welsh local authorities. It originally took place in September 2023.

Hear from Professor Sally Holland, Professor of Social Work at Cardiff University and former Children’s Commissioner for Wales, as she speaks about her experience of using the Bright Spots surveys.

She highlights the importance for local authorities of listening to the children and young people in their care and why the Bright Spots surveys are one of the best ways of doing this. She also shares how the surveys are being used to evaluate the Basic Income Pilot for care leavers in Wales.
