Lesley Gray started this petition to School photography companies and

Looked After Children often have few possessions as they move from place to place. They perhaps have a box of memories or scrap book made for them to move with. Foster Careers and Social Workers will take the task of curating memories for children with varying degrees of seriousness. School photos form an important part of memories for all children, but they are expensive and so not all Foster Careers will purchase them. 

We recently adopted two children and while we have some snaps of them in their uniform, we have only the ‘proofs’ of their school photos, from while they were in the care system.

Imagine the children who spend their whole lives in the system, never having a school photo to look back on or to show to their own children in the future.

We are petitioning that School Photography Companies should consider offering a free print for Looked After Children and that Local Authorities should provide additional funding to Foster Careers (or schools) for the purchase of school photos.
