Lemn Sissay, the poet and former care leaver has published a list of 100 inspirational people who have been fostered, adopted or in children’s homes.


From top comedians to best selling authors, and from an NHS manager to a Kiss FM presenter; I have compiled this small  list of 100 people from the UK who were fostered adopted or in children’s homes. I have met most of them on my travels. They are all incredible people listed in no particular order. Click on their links to find out more. This list is unique and made over some years.


Some of the names you will know but not all of them. Please share and link to this list.
