The Caldecott Foundation celebrates its Centenary this year. Perhaps it is not inappropriate for me to reflect on this as I went to work there as a young man 60 years ago this year. I was a conscientious objector and a tribunal gave me ‘social work’ as an alternative to military service before going up to university. At that time I wanted to train for ministry in the Church. As it turned out, I remained in social work for the rest of my career and I have maintained contact with the Caldecott Foundation all that time.
