Description

Making A Difference. a Centennial History of Presbyterian Support Otago. 1906 - 2006 by Ian Dougherty and Jane Thomson. Making a Difference is a fascinating account of the history of one of the most enduring, respected and successful voluntary organisations in New Zealand. Established in Dunedin in 1906 as the first Presbyterian social service organisation in New Zealand, it carried out pioneering work in the institutional care of young and old and has subsequently been innovative in providing a range of family and community based services. This boo is more that an institutional history. It also gives an invaluable insight into the life of a social service provider through the experiences of paid employees, volunteers, former children's home residents, people in aged residential care and recipients of services in the wider community. A very tidy almost unread copy.
