The Social Care Institute for Excellence has been commissioned by the Department of
                  Health and Department for Education to improve mental and emotional being support
                  for children in care, leaving care and those adopted. For more information about the
                  project scope click here

                  During the course of the project we have engaged with over 60 young people and we
                  intend to continue. In order to foster an inclusive environment we have used a catalogue
                  of multisensory methods to ensure that we cater for the range of emotional literacy
                  within the cohort.  This has included creative collaging; sketching; verbal discussions;
                  drama; flash voting; film and photography.

                  Every session we facilitate involves young people being asked a question- and then
                  being provided with the choice of which method they would like to contribute by. The
                  group is always brought back together to share via their platform what they have
                  created or discussed- which then allows for flash voting to gain a group consensus
                  and/or understanding of the overall views.

                  This visual guide is from a session with 35 young people who were from foster care,
                  leaving care and adopted. We asked:
                        What support they want if they were having a challenging day with their mental
                        How this support could be best delivered and what it should look like.
                        What would you like adults who care for you to know

                  As a project we are listening to a number of voices and will make our final
                  recommendations in October. This creative thread is a snapshot of part of the session.
