The Bright Spots Programme began in 2013 with the aim of understanding children and young people’s experience of care.  The Programme uses four online surveys of well-being to capture the views of looked after children (age 4-7 years and 8-10 years), young people (11-18 years), and care leavers (18-25 years).  In this presentation survey data from 10,000 children and young people (age 4-18yrs) will be used to consider the indicators associated with low and very high well-being with a particular focus on two indicators:   having a trusted adult to rely on and feelings about appearance.
