Things not to say to people who have been in care.

Please be aware this video contains language that may not be suitable for a younger audience.

BBC Three have worked to create an interesting and lighthearted piece highlighting the perspective of young people, who have experienced time being looked-after.

People who have spent time living in care hear all sorts of questions and comments about their experiences, from “So, like Tracy Beaker?” to “Were you left on a doorstep?” and “You don’t look like your family.” Then there’s, “But you seem perfectly normal?” Here, eight people who’ve been in care talk about, laugh at, and challenge some of the most common assumptions made about them and their lives.

If you have been affected by issues raised in this film, help and support is available.
