Children sitting on a wall Why do children live in care?
Children are put into care for lots of different reasons.

Sometimes it's because their parents can't look after them properly and others decide it's better for their children to live somewhere else.

It can also happen if a child's parent isn't well, has to go into hospital or dies.

Others have parents who just can't cope. And some have parents who neglect or abuse them.
