To our amazing friends, family, and followers, we send our very best wishes to you all at this difficult time.
There is no doubt that the last few weeks have been very challenging. Through this period, our mission remains the same: that no child should have to carry their life in a bin bag, and that every child in care is incredible.
At Madlug, we love to hear stories and firsthand accounts of those who have experiences of the care system. It reaffirms our belief that every child deserves value, worth and dignity - no matter what age they are - and how the smallest acts of goodness can make significant differences in the lives of others.
In this guest blog, Ian Dickson, a retired social worker, ofsted inspector, residential manager and children's rights advocate from England recounts his personal experience of being in care.
