Kids Lost in Care
Panorama investigates the standard of residential care for vulnerable children. In homes where care is not up to scratch, some young people run away into risky situations.
Panorama investigates the standard of residential care for Britain's most vulnerable children. The results of a seven-month investigation reveal that thousands of young people are being exported to children's homes across the country, to care that is often not up to scratch, leading some to run away into risky situations. One of the young victims of the Oxford grooming case reveals her untold story of the abuse she suffered while living in residential care. 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.
