Abstract

The research upon which this report is based, was commissioned by the Scottish Commission for the Regulation of Care, who wished to capture the views of young people who use residential care home services on their experience of being looked after. The aim of the research was to provide a 'snap shot' picture of the views of young people living in care homes. This was to be done using qualitative methods to obtain meaningful data of young people’s satisfaction with care services. The National Care Standards were used as a contextual framework in gaining their views.
