The performer and poet Lemn Sissay looks at the issue of care, something that he has personal experience of.

Having spent 18 years of his life between children’s homes, foster families and assessment centres, he knows about the system. In this programme he meets seven youngsters in Coventry who are currently in care, and try to help them express in words their experiences.

Superkids: Breaking away from Care is on Channel 4 at 22.00.
