Measuring Happiness

Report by the Children’s Rights Director for England: At the start of our work on ‘happiness’, we wanted to get an idea of what children from care and children living in residential and boarding schools themselves thought ‘happiness’ was. To help us do this, we held two separate focus discussion groups with children to discuss the subject of happiness, and what they thought it meant. We have summarized what all these groups of children and young people told us. The resulting scale is also presented.  Link to pdf Report
