This is a beautiful video of a care system which more often than not seems to be ashamed of itself. And a system ashamed of itself will never produce young people who are not ashamed to be using it. Please watch the video slowly. They are young people from care. They are happy, confident and articulate. They are studying.
They are what I expect of a care system full to bursting with parents – staff, social workers and politicians – working together to bring up a child who is away from theirs.The care system will be great when people in it are proud to be in it – like the ones in this video – and people outside of it think it is so good they want to be in it too. The tide is turning. What do you think of this video? Honestly.
