Children's social care questionnaires 2015: what children told us

Publication year:
Place of publication:

Slide presentation summarising key findings from an online questionnaire on what children and young people thought was good about their children’s home or foster carers, and what could be better. A total of 3,271 children and young people responded to the Ofsted questionnaire that ran from 4 February to 9 May 2015. The five most common themes that emerged were: feeling safe and looked after; having staff who put them first; feeling like part of a foster family; having fun things to do and good food to eat; independence, responsibility and having a say. The responses will be used to help Ofsted to decide what inspections should focus on and also help providers and local authorities to identify areas for improvement. (Edited publisher abstract)
