1. Another thread of my rambling reflections about the politics of the care experience going back to the 50's to the present day. >
2. As I have said, the 50's/60's were brutally savage with violence towards kids routine across care. No complaints procedures, no advocacy, no pressure groups. Stigma, discrimination, feelings of abandonment, homelessness, etc etc >
3. I was in the job throughout the 70's until I retired in the noughties. I've been around the care system for almost 70yrs & must have seen 100's of care settings & spoke to 1000's of care experienced people. I've watched or taken part in care leaver politics most of my life >

Some of the #teamies, i.e. me, can't be there which is really sad but for a wonderful reason, granddaughter-sitting-Sadie-Rose. So I thought in celebration of the launch, I'd share some photos from the art exhibition that ran alongside the conference.
What better place to start than with the art exhibition team: @10PYusuf, The Dame and @Rodkippen.

There will be more!

@10PYusuf @Rodkippen As with many stories there was of course a #backstory - @DrDeeMichell and me(!) met at the Foundling Museum for a pre-conference chat where talked all things orphans and #CEP. Dee had travelled with hubby to be at the conference.
