In this series we’re looking at what needs to change in the Care system, and how change can be made. We hear from young people who have been through the care system, those that work in it and policy makers – all of whom are trying to make change.
“That initial ‘you’re going into care’ is the most isolated you’ll ever feel” Rhi, 25.
Isolation and loneliness is something that affects us all, but how does it affect young people in care? What's it like to turn 18 and leave care? What’s it like living alone for the first time with limited support?
In the first episode, we speak to a group of care-experienced young people in Plymouth about the challenges they face and what changes need to be made to the care system to make it better.
