The experience of children and young people during COVID-19 has been very different to that of adults.

Very young children have missed out on early education experiences that are important to development and helping to close the disadvantage gap. Older children have missed schooling and time with friends. There is not yet a clear picture of the experiences of children and young people throughout the lockdown phase of the crisis.

To help ensure that the voices, feeling and wishes of children and young people are considered in recovery planning and decision-making, the Local Government Association commissioned Achievement for All to carry out a literature review to draw together the existing research. I Want To Do Well is the final report of the literature review.
