About us

Madlug  C.I.C is a 'for purpose' company that was founded in 2015 by social entrepreneur Dave Linton because no child in care should carry their life in bin bag.

Key Information:

There are currently over 93000 children in care in the UK.

In the UK one child or young person enters the care system every 20 minutes and often have their belongings moved in black bin bags.  

34% of care leavers are not in education, employment or training at age 19.

More than half of children in care are there because of neglect or abuse.
