In 2017, we published our first report on the subjective well-being of children who were looked after (Selwyn & Briheim-Crookall, 2017). That report contained analyses of the responses of 611 children and young people who had completed the ‘Your Life, Your Care’ survey in 2016.

It examined children’s responses to survey questions that asked about their subjective well-being and different areas of their lives – their relationships, rights, resilience, and recovery. Here we present findings from 2017, where 2,263 looked after children and young people from 16 local authorities completed the same survey.
