Lives in Care: Stories of Resilience

Mindhouse Productions, the makers of the award-winning radio series and podcast Grounded With Louis Theroux, is teaming up with BBC Radio 4 and our Tony Simpson to explore life in the British care system.

Insightful, emotional and deeply personal, Lives In Care: Stories Of Resilience is a three-part documentary series told only by those who have experienced life in care and at a time when the care system has been labelled as under “extreme stress” by an independent review.

Through the series, Tony will meet some of our young people who have recently been through the very same system he did back in 1961. Read and listen to their stories of the trauma of entering care, the resilience of surviving it, and the jolt of leaving.
