Thrown Away Child is a memoir covering Louise Allen’s abusive childhood in a foster home, how she survived - using her love of art as a sanctuary - and how she hopes to right old wrongs now by fostering children herself and campaigning for the improvement of foster care services. It is a compelling and inspirational story. This book gives a voice to the many children who grew up unhappily in care.
Louise Allen is hard working, determined and talented speaker. She has appeared on BBC South West to discuss the problems in the fostering world. The publication of this book will coincide with the start of her new campaign, Looking After Looked After Children for which she plans to use her personal story to highlight the plight of looked-after children.
