From care to chaos

Watch again here

Rebecca Southworth was taken from an abusive family home aged 13 and placed in care. Ten years on, she revisits her own painful history and meets others like her to discover why such a high proportion of sex workers, rough sleepers and prison inmates spent time in care.

What has taken so many from care to chaos? Is it the experiences that led them to care in the first place, the process of going from home to home whilst ‘looked after’, or learning to live independently at such a young age without much of a safety net?
