Following the story of the staff and residents of the foster home made famous for housing Tracy Beaker.
With news breaking that Ashdene Ridge is being sold for development, the YP are in a tailspin to try and save their home. Alex's idea of causing a scene only makes matters worse and even Ryan's attempts to use Mike's MBE to gain favour with the Queen doesn't work. The others, along with returning Tee and Johnny, set up a crowdfunding page to raise the cash to buy Ashdene Ridge themselves. When the money is stolen from the office safe, along with Mike's MBE, all hope really is lost. The YP will be separated within the week and Ashdene Ridge will be gone forever.
The arrival of Elektra and the discovery of Roman remains put a halt to any development plans at Ashdene Ridge. The joy is short lived, however, when the roman ruins is revealed to be a scam. Ashdene Ridge will be closing for good. The YP are resigned to their fate, all but Tyler, who faces a race against time to expose Mr Umbleby. Trying to prove his innocence, Alex faces an uphill battle for redemption. Along with Mrs Umbleby, Alex brings forward a key bit of evidence to Tyler and the Dumping Ground is saved. Mike, May-Li, and the YP celebrate another Christmas in Ashdene Ridge.
The YP pile their problems on Tyler's shoulders and rather than face them, Tyler escapes to his safe place, his desert island. His perfect paradise is soon short lived when the other YP arrive. Tyler retreats once more but realises the YP must work together and face their fears in order to get home. Ryan sees a chance to gain power as Floss, Sasha and Dexter face their fears.
With her mum embarrassed that she lives in care, Jody is forced to play happy families. As the pressure mounts, Jody's anger rises and this doesn't go unnoticed by Mike. May-Li offers Jody a different solution - boxing. Even though she begins to enjoy letting out her anger, Jody is pulled back into her mum's charade but she can't take it any longer. Jody storms off and Denise gives her an ultimatum. Fix this or her mum will disown her. In the house, Floss becomes obsessed with an uber-cool architect and a battle for a luxury bedroom commences.
The pressure rises on Jody as she's torn between a future with her mum or one at Ashdene Ridge. She flips and inadvertently injures Archie. It's step too far for Mike and May-Li and Jody's place at the DG comes under threat. Running away, Jody can't take Denise's lies any longer. She tells Grant the truth. With nowhere else to turn, Jody sleeps rough. As fears grow, Jody's found at the boxing gym. Jody's reunited with her DG family but forgiving her mum may take a longer. Best friends Candi-Rose and Chloe fall out after Chloe shares an 'ugly selfie' that Candi-Rose wanted kept private.
