    Children's Society

    The Children's Society is known for it research into children's wellbeing. It seeks to provide the a national picture on how children feel about their lives by asking children themselves. Over the last 12 years the charity has surveyed over 60,000 children as to how they think their lives are going.

    The charity went on to develop the Good Childhood Index in 2010 to provide a measure of subjective well-being in relation to 10 aspects of life for children over the age of eight. It surveys children on topics including their appearance, school life and family relationships among others.

    Each year The Children's Society produces a report based on the index in partnership with the University of York called The Good Childhood Report. This data is used by the Office for National Statistics' Measuring National Well-being Programme as the life satisfaction measure of personal well-being for children.

    The 2016 Good Childhood Report showed "a growing gap in happiness between girls and boys, with girls being particularly unhappy with their appearance". The Good Childhood Report 2017 found that fear of crime is the biggest worry for children and young people.

    The commissioning of the service is also now increasingly focused on the meaningful use of outcome measures. As such Leeds CAMHS wanted to explore young people and their carers’ experiences of outcome measures.They designed an online and paper survey which they promoted using a range of methods, including designing posters, using social media and informing clinicians. Following an initially poor uptake (four responses), the survey was handed to patients when they attended appointments. The results provided some key learning that Leeds CAMHS will be able to use to improve the use of outcome measures within their service. Read the whole feedback here.

    Livewell Southwest

    Livewell Southwest is an independent, award winning social enterprise providing integrated health and social care services for people across Plymouth, South Hams and West Devon, as well as some specialist services for people living in parts of Devon and Cornwall. We are at the forefront of integrating health and social care, which means that we care for people in new ways that are more efficient, with health and social care professionals who would have previously worked in individual teams now working together. This helps us to deliver the right care for people, in the right place and at the right time.

    Locality working means that we create strong networks and partnerships with a wide range of community groups and professionals so that support is responsive and provided within your local community. You will find our teams in community hospitals, GP practices, sports centres, health and wellbeing hubs, at community events and even at football matches.

  • Mindspace

    Mindspace

    The MindSpace initiative has seen mental health practitioners embedded in secondary schools across Barnsley to tackle poor mental health among children.

    Funded by Barnsley CCG, and delivered in all 10 Barnsley secondary schools by the Wellspring Academy Trust, the £1.3m scheme will see teams of mental health nurses work with young people whilst trained counsellors work with parents and carers. Tutors also play a role, providing group, classroom-based intervention on topics such as self-harm, depression and suicide. Furthermore, teaching staff will receive mental health training to help identify those needing support.

    This ‘multi-service’ approach to mental health provision bypasses waiting lists for traditional mental health services – already in high-demand, with low-capacity – and ensures that schools can tackle problems quickly and efficiently. Early intervention has been proven to reduce exclusion rates, minimise family disruption and stem educational failure; this initiative seeks to achieve this by linking mental health professionals, educators, families and young people in an entirely new way.

    The National House Project was incorporated as a charity in August 2018. It provides support and expertise to local authorities around the country to set up Local House Projects for young people leaving care.

    Young people become part of a community which supports them to develop the practical and emotional skills that they need to live independently. They will work on houses which will become theirs to live in for as long as they want.

    The National House Project (NHP) is funded by the Department for Education until March 2020 and will support the roll out of Local House Projects (LHP) to five local authorities as well as developing financial modelling and scalability on a national platform, across the UK.

    Whilst support to the five local authorities is a priority, the NHP is already in discussions with a number of local authorities across the Country about developing LHPs in their areas.

    Interested local authorities will be supported to setup their own House Projects via membership arrangements with the NHP. With contracted support arrangements and a suite of resources, the fidelity of the model will be assured.

  • The Pears Family School

    The Pears Family School

    The Family School is a different type of school that provides opportunities for young people who currently present as unsuited or unable to meet the demands of mainstream school provision.  It is our conviction that many of these children have tremendous latent potential that an innovative school will nurture and release for the benefit of the wider society. 

    These children need early and sustained intervention to ensure that in the first instance they are not permanently excluded from school or, where they have already been excluded, to ensure their return to full time appropriate provision is rapid and sustained.

    The Family School will enable its pupils to:

    • progress academically;
    • improve their challenging behaviours;
    • recover their psychological and emotional well-being; and
    • gain resilience so that they continue with full-time education and return successfully to their mainstream school.

    The Family School has been developed through a new collaboration between the Anna Freud Centre and the former heads of a family education centre in Westminster, Neil Dawson and Brenda McHugh.
