The BBC has developed a season of programming examining the lives of children in care, in conjunction with charities including The Prince's Trust, the Who Cares? Trust, and the NSPCC.
The Taking Care season, which airs for two weeks from 15 February, will use TV, radio and online programmes to tell stories of children growing up in care.
The charities were part of a steering committee that helped the BBC research and commission programmes to include documentaries, an Eastenders storyline and a drama starring Billie Piper.
"This is unprecedented coverage for the care sector, which is often plagued by negative stereotypes," said Mark Tobin, communications manager at the Who Cares? Trust. "We hope it will improve care children's self-esteem by showing that people want to hear about them."
