Children Looked After: DiscoverVR launch at Orchard

A pioneering VR project showing a child's journey through the care system

Here at Orchard, we’ve been working hard on creating VR experiences that really matter, and Children Looked After – A child’s journey through the care system is one of those.

Launching tomorrow (May 25th), Children Looked After – A child’s journey through the care system is a full VR immersive experience that puts the viewer in the shoes of a child going through the foster care process. It takes an emotive approach and demonstrates the true -sometimes gritty- reality of what some children are exposed to.

This pioneering experience is one of a kind in the industry, and aims to help prospective foster families and teachers understand the feelings and challenges a child faces while going through the care system.

It was a very humbling and emotional experience working closely with local foster children, families and schools, and we are so proud to be involved. We hope that the project will benefit thousands of children across the UK by raising awareness of how the journey through the care system can affect a young person.
