Who Cares: Stories of Looking After Children in Southwark
to Sun 22 Dec 2019
Tue-Sun 11am-6pm, Wed 11am-9pm

This exhibition of portrait photographs celebrates foster carers in Southwark.

Of the 12 million children in England, roughly 120,000 are currently in care, with 75% of these in foster placements. Who opens their doors to these children? How do foster carers work with social services to create secure homes for them? What joys, struggles and learning happen as a result of this collaborative family building?

A series of accompanying public events will explore the complex, highly skilled and often invisible work of foster care, and share information for those interested in foster care.

ABOUT
Who Cares was developed by Alice Keith-Scott (social worker, Southwark Council), India Harvey (Supersmashers Manager, South London Gallery) and eight foster carers with experience of fostering in the borough over the last 30 years. Portraits are taken by photographer Sarah Booker.

ACCESS
There is limited seating in the gallery space.
A large text version of the gallery guide is available.
The exhibition is on the second floor which is accessible via a lift or stairs.
Ear plugs, ear defenders, magnifying glasses and wheelchairs are all available.
