This report sets out the views of children in care on a range of different questions that they said were important to them in earlier consultations. 611 children aged under 12 filled out question cards on topics such as school life, staying safe, disability, unfairness, keeping in touch with family, and the most important things in their lives. Family and friends were the most important things for children in foster care and children's homes with boarders in boarding school the most likely to put their families on the list of the most important things in their lives.
