Supporting children and young people's wellbeing


This free course, Supporting children and young people’s wellbeing, has looked at children and young people’s wellbeing as well as some of the services and practices that can support children and young people. The range of activities have allowed you to explore the links between wellbeing, happiness and resilience. Drawing on examples of holistic practice you have reflected on the value of multi-agency services which can support children and young people in diverse ways. Finally you considered why it might be important to evaluate such services and how settings try and find different ways in which they can show they are being effective and making a difference to the wellbeing of children, young people, and the families they live in.

This OpenLearn course is an adapted extract from the Open University course KE206 Making a difference: working with children and young people [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .
