Fighting For My Niece
Entrepreneur Simon fights to become his teenage niece's legal guardian after she was placed in care. Grace Dent presents.
38-year-old entrepreneur Simon fights to become his teenage niece's legal guardian after she was placed in care.
Until last year, Simon was a highly successful businessman with a city lifestyle to match. Then his business went under - and with it his sense of purpose in life. At around the same time his 13-year-old niece was placed into local authority care because of her mother's drug use. Simon resolves to get his niece out of care and become her legal guardian - but it involves a fraught legal process and a massive life change.
