Overview

The Brightness of Stars: Stories of Adults Who Came Through The British Care System by Lisa Cherry

Imagine not knowing what happens to your child after the age of 18 or 21 years old. The data currently collected is only part of the story; there is no data collected at the point of entry into the system and none collected from adults who have experienced being in care and have had the opportunity to reflect upon what happened and therefore contribute to policy making.
