Leila Rendel, Founder & Director of Caldecott Community

Wherever the treatment of difficult or deprived children is under discussion by responsible social workers, someone is pretty certain to say: 'But have you seen the Caldecott Community?” And someone else is sure to say: 'Why yes – the Caldecott Community. Of course Leila Rendel...You must see what Leila Rendel is doing.' But now it is a question of 'See what Leila Rendel has done'; because in 1969 she died at the age of 86, having completed a plan for her own retirement in favour of chosen successors.
