In this audio exhibition, 14- 21 year olds share their experiences of growing up in care.
The stories of young people in care today have been themed to sit alongside objects in the Introductory Gallery, comparing social care in the past with the present. Scan QR codes on the labels of selected works with your smartphone, or click on the audio files below to hear their stories.
Each track examines different aspects of life in the care system, from arriving at care homes to running away from them, the stigma attached to growing up in care and the difficulties of moving on to independent living.
