A Channel 4 documentary, which will be broadcast tonight (17th February) at 11pm, will highlight the experiences of three people as they leave the care system.

“Kicked Out Kids” is the latest documentary to focus on the realities of social work services, and will follow three teenagers from Norfolk, Yorkshire and Lancashire as they try to live independently for the first time in their lives. Filmed over a six month period, the programme will focus on 18-year-old Jemma, 17-year-old Connor and 17-year-old Demornia, and will show how they adapt to living on their own. 

The teenagers were expected to live independently upon turning 18 as the change to the law, which promised ongoing support until the age of 21 was only applicable to those living in foster care, rather than those living in residential children’s homes (such as the trio within the documentary).
