Kids Lost in Care’: Investigation into children’s homes, BBC1, 24 June

bbcIt looks like Monday night’s (tonight’s) Panorama will be well worth a watch, especially if you work with looked-after children.
By the sounds if it though, it won’t be feel-good viewing about the positive work many social care workers do. The BBC spent seven months investigating standards of care in children’s homes – in light of the high profile sexual exploitation cases that found a disproportionate number of victims were in residential care – revealing “thousands of young people are being exported to children’s homes across the country, to care that is often not up to scratch”.
One of the victims of the Oxford abuse case will feature, talking about the abuse she experienced while in a care home. The BBC says the film also “shines a light on the growing private market in children’s homes, where there is little transparency, even though it is fully-funded by the UK taxpayer”.

  • Panorama is on BBC1 on Monday 24 June at 8:30pm. We’ll be watching so do join the debate on Twitter if you are too.
