The Children’s Society is a national charity that helps young people facing abuse, exploitation, and neglect. The Children’s Society supports children through serious life challenges, and campaigns for big social changes that will improve the lives of those who need hope most. Their vision is a society built for all children where hope is alive in every child. Over the next decade, The Children’s Society is determined to ensure this generation of children has a better childhood.
For a number of years, The Children’s Society has been conducting wellbeing surveys amongst young people in their research, most notably the Good Childhood Report
that is released every year. The Children’s Society was testing the Good Childhood Index
as an outcome tool and this typically entailed a paper-based survey. They wanted to test out the viability of using an app to deliver the tool, adding in a feature that would allow the young person to see how their wellbeing had changed over time. An app would also allow them to present those changes in a way that was easy to understand and could enable further conversations. The Children’s Society approached Cantarus to build them an app thanks to our many years’ experience in creating bespoke, engaging apps for clients including Little Troopers.
