15,000 Kids and Counting
Craig Parkinson voices a new 3-part documentary called 15,000 Kids and Counting. On average, one child is taken into care every 20 minutes in Britain. Child protection levels in Britain are at a record high. Over 15,000 children were waiting to be adopted in 2013 – twice as many as five years earlier.
With unparalleled access to the entire adoption process, this series follows social workers, foster carers, birth parents and adopters as heart-wrenchingly difficult decisions are made about the future of some of Britain’s most vulnerable children.
15,000 Kids and Counting starts on Thursday 3rd April, 9pm on Channel 4.
