Digital Wellbeing Report – July 2022

As part of our Annual Participation Programme we created a Digital Wellbeing Group. This report documents our analysis phase of the project, and the groups next steps will be using the information gathered from the care community’s lived experience and views on online safety, digital rights, and relationships online to co-design influencing and information outputs. These will be used to inform and support our wider membership,
Corporate Parents, and professionals around Digital Wellbeing directly
from the community’s lived experience.
