Richard Balbernie wrote this paper in 1973 and delivered it at a conference, “The Evolving of Caring Systems”, at the University of Dundee.
When he wrote this, the Cotswold Community had become a therapeutic community but the ordeal of transforming an Approved School was still very raw and this comes across in the paper.
Richard was also very aware just how precarious the future could be for the Cotswold Community: this paper was written on the cusp of the transfer of ownership and management from the Rainer Foundation to Wiltshire County Council, a highly anxious time for him as Principal.
