Everyone needs to feel loved. The author examines what 'love' means in the context of residential childcare. She discusses issues of: personal and professional boundaries; power and abuse; people and systems; rights and expectations. She sets out a vision of what residential childcare might look like in the future and concludes that legislating for love is both possible and desirable in setting aspirations.
