Abstract

Children and young people living in care are the subjects of extensive detailed records, the majority of which are born digital. Recent research has shown that these records are critical to their sense of self, identity and memory, both while in care and later in life. However, records rarely include their voices and feelings or take account of their needs. They are designed for social workers and service providers. Our paper introduces a project to develop a participatory digital record keeping system for child social care, in partnership with young care leavers, to enable them to shape their own life stories.
