Each child is unique and there is no set level of wellbeing that children should achieve. Each child should be helped to reach their full potential as an individual.
The wellbeing indicators help make it easier for everyone to be consistent in how they consider the quality of a child or young person’s life at a particular point in time.
Families and people working with children and young people can use the wellbeing indicators to identify what help a child or young person needs in order to help them access the right support or advice.
All services working with children and young people, and those who care for them, must play their part to promote, support and safeguard children and young people’s wellbeing.
