This episode has two interviews I gave on topical child care subjects. The first talks about the influence of Peter Righton , a convicted abuser who was influential in changing systems of care for looked after children in the 1980s and 1990s. There still could be much to discover about not only his behaviour but networks and contacts he had at all levels of influence and seniority.
The second is about the case of neglect which prompted a serious case review that was published this week. It criticised all agencies who, it said , missed many opportunities to interrupt chronic neglect in a family with several young children and talked of the manipulation and deception by the parents who were jailed.
There will be the next installment of the special Joint Social Work Education Conference podcasts in the next few days as well !!
Many thanks to all of you for listening. The audience is still growing. Keep the feedback coming !by
