Children’s well-being can be thought of as a dynamic process in which a child’s external circumstances such as their socio-economic background, family circumstances, and physical surroundings are constantly interacting with their individual characteristics such as their personality and cognitive ability to satisfy their needs. The well-being of children is seen as an important aspect of the overall well-being of the nation. There are currently around 12 million children residing in the United Kingdom (UK) representing 20% of the overall population. It is important to measure children’s well-being, as poor well-being can impact on the psycho social development of a child and research can help practitioners shape services to improve future outcomes for children.
