Children in care: 'Everything people are doing has an impact on us'
A number of charities and campaigners for children's rights are calling on the government to give young people more support and listen to their stories about being in care.
According to the latest figures from the government there are more than 80,0000 children living in care in England alone.
Over 100 young people with care experience gathered at parliament last week to demand that their voices are heard and for the children's social care to be radically reformed.
A Department for Education spokesperson said: "Keeping vulnerable children safe is at the heart of government policy."
After meeting with care experienced young people, the Education Secretary and Children's Minister both pledged to ensure the voices of care experienced people are heard.
Ricky spoke to some young people who have been in care to find out more about their experiences.
