This week, the Today programme reported that local authorities in England are making more applications than ever to put children into care.
Jade, who has spent part of her teenage years in care, says that looking back at her time it could have been done differently but she still feels social services do try and make it as smooth as possible.
She believes social services are doing the "right thing" and she feels they are being unfairly victimised for "stepping up to the mark". They can never win over public opinion, she adds.
