2011 Children and Young People’s Wellbeing Monitor for Wales
Wellbeing indicators are reported on at an all-Wales level and this second edition is beginning to put in place a series of data on children and young people’s wellbeing which can be used to track changes over time.
In addition to this it includes findings from the wider evidence base and the voices of children and young people themselves.
The Monitor is based on themes taken from the Assembly Government’s 7 core aims for children and young people which are underpinned by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
These themes are:
- early years
- access to play, sport, leisure and culture
- rights and entitlements
- safe home and community
- ensuring no child or young person is disadvantaged by poverty
The Monitor aims to provide up-to-date information on children and young people in Wales; monitor progress towards the Welsh Assembly Governments cross-cutting child poverty targets through the child poverty indicators; and raise awareness of the issues that need to be tackled.
Three pieces of work were commissioned to support the development of this Monitor: a review of the evidence, a qualitative study and additional analysis of the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS). The evidence review was conducted by Cardiff University. The qualitative study was conducted by Glyndwr University, Cardiff University and Red Kite Research and Consultancy. The additional analysis of the MCS was conducted by Centre for Longitudinal Studies, Institute of Education, University of London.
