Time well spent: a study of well-being and children's daily activities

By Jane Aldgate and Miranda McIntosh


This is the first study in Scotland to focus on the everyday activities of children and young people who are looked after by local authorities. Its aim is to help us better understand how looked after children spend their time, what activities and interests are most important to them, and how their activities relate to their physical and emotional development and well-being.\ud The key messages of this study are that looked after children are ordinary children with the same interests as other children. They therefore need to have the same opportunities as other children to develop and pursue those interests. The adults in their lives need to think and plan carefully, and provide additional resources where necessary, to make sure that these opportunities are available to the children
