On the 20th September, STV broadcast the documentary 'Who Cares'. Four members of Who Cares? Scotland have participated and discussed their lives as care-experienced young people. This documentary is available to watch online.
In preparation for the new Scottish Parliament, Who Cares? Scotland in May called on the First Minister of Scotland to listen to 1,000 care experiences people over the course of the next Parliament and to take action. All party leaders made the commitment to listen to 1,000 voices.
More recently, some of these voices were captured by STV's documentary called 'Who Cares'. As part of the filming, STV arranged for four care-experienced family members and staff members from Who Cares Scotland to be filmed with the First Minister, who was affected by those she heard from and their stories. She has also committed to start listening to the 1,000 voices.
