Digital Health Passport for Looked After Children

Alfred Rowett


Supervised by Catherine Teehan; Moderated by Michael Daley

Looked after children are often declared 'wards of the state' where Parental Responsibility has been awarded to local authorities. Looked after children are children that have been removed from their homes because the home environment has been declared 'unsafe'. They often end up being moved between foster homes, group homes and other relatives. This is particularly difficult when trying to keep track of appointments essential to their health and well-being. Working in collaboration with the Educational Director of the Child Friendly City programme, this project will create a digital solution to help looked after children and their carers keep track of important medical information and appointments.
