Is It time to stop treating kids in care as commodities?

In this episode, Adrian Goldberg examines the outsourcing of children’s homes to private companies. The evidence suggests that profit making firms in the sector generally provide a worse service than local authority providers; and are more likely to move youngsters away from their families and community networks.

Adrian’s guests are Dr Anders Bach-Mortenson from Oxford University’s Department For Social Policy and Intervention and journalist Martin Barrow, who runs the Week In Care mailing list, and is a foster carer himself.

Produced in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg and Harvey White.
