Colin Thompson

Colin Thompson, a care leaver in 2013, tells in his own words what it is really like to grow up in care and then make his way in the world.

In one of 17 interviews conducted as part of the Care Leaver's Stories Project, Colin Thompson talks about his life before, during and after care. The full interview is in three parts, and a film summary and transcript is also available. The project, funded by the Heritage Lottery fund and developed by SCIE in partnership with the British Library, enabled care experienced people to record their life stories on digital video.
