Social Worker, Author and MBE recipient, Mark Riddell, shares with us his experiences of growing up in care.
Originally, I am from away up in Scotland, Aberdeen the windy city. I have been in social work for what feels like a hundred years. I was born in 1968 and only entered care in 1980. My campaigning for children in care and care leavers started in 1983 when I was 15yrs old and in a residential children’s home.
