Become (formerly known as The Who Cares? Trust) has been supporting, and campaigning for, children in care and young care leavers since 1985. Our experienced spokespeople can talk authoritatively and confidently about the issues facing children in care and young care leavers. We believe it’s important to listen to children and young people and what they think about care – and that extends to media comment. We will try and facilitate links between young people and journalists when this is appropriate.

If ppl can't see why transporting a child's belongings around in bin bags is detrimental to their self worth, self esteem and general wellbeing then they should not be in the role IMO. There is no excuse ever that would make this acceptable.
All the major children's charities are as opposed to using bin bags as we and the young people are. Councils have opposed it openly too over many years, but still it happens. That's why I think individuals who still do it should be penalised by Ofsted
