Numerous books have been written about Victorian child care pioneers, but few biographical studies have been published about more recent child care and welfare giants. In this book, Bob Holman, a champion for children in his own right, looks at the lives of six inspirational individuals who have made significant contributions to the well-being of disadvantaged children over the course of the 20th century.Each of the six discussed - Eleanor Rathbone, Lady Marjory Allen, Clare Winnicott, John Stroud, Barbara Kahan and Peter Townsend - has been important in establishing present systems of child care and welfare, and in stimulating debate around issues which remain high on policy and practitioner agendas today.
Cathy Jamieson, Shadow Economic Secretary to the Treasury, UK Government
“With child care and the needs of disadvantaged children high on the agenda today, Bob Holman’s book is a timely reminder of the need for ‘champions for children’ in our local communities as well as in politics.”
