Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Sir Ed Davey, shares the story of his grandparent's involvement in his own upbringing with Sky News' home editor Jason Farrell.
He explains how his maternal grandfather and mother were "critical" to looking after him as a child after the death of this father when he was just four.
When his mother passed away 11 years later, they looked after him full-time while living with the loss of their only child.
Sir Ed says he now believes in "kinship care" - where grandparents are supported and encouraged in looking after grandchildren alongside foster or adoptive parents.
The publication of the final report from the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care in England has spent the past 14 months hearing from kinship carers and many others with different stories and experiences of children’s social care.
