BBC Radio 4’s ‘File on 4’ has recorded a programme on Separated Siblings to be broadcast this evening, Tuesday 14 January, at 8pm.
The programme will highlight the magnitude of the issue of sibling separation across the UK and share first-hand experiences of care experienced brothers and sisters who have lived apart and the effect it has had on their lives.
The programme will feature Theighan McGirr and her sister Sophia who spoke to the programme-makers about their experience of being separated when growing up in care. Theighan has been a hugely powerful voice for change to stop sibling separation both in her work with Who Cares? Scotland and in a personal capacity.
Clan Childlaw and Siblings Reunited (STAR) also contributed to the programme. The programme will be available to download and repeated on Sunday 19th January at 5pm. Read more about the programme here.
Everyone at Stand Up For Siblings is looking forward to tuning in!
