If you’re looking for something to watch this evening, this eye-opening documentary which aired last night is well worth watching. In Ireland in the last year, almost 500 young adults left foster or residential state care for a new life on their own. After Care tells the story of young adults in Ireland who have just come out of state care as they are forced to live independently from the age of 18.
The documentary looks at the ups and the downs of this challenging process, and showcases the serious integrity of these inspirational 18 year olds. There’s plenty of food for thought in this, so make sure you catch it before it disappears from RTÉ Player.
