Mark Edwards spent the majority of his childhood in foster care and then in a children’s home. Following this, he was sectioned under the Mental Health Act and admitted to the local mental institution. All of this is documented in his new book ‘Life After Care‘, which reveals the struggles he and his family endured.

In this honest and gritty chat with Loretta, Mark shares a number of sensitive and distressing things which may not be suitable for everyone, including children or younger listeners, but there is a happier end to this story; Mark is now a vicar in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and is a volunteer Ambulance First Responder. He is police chaplain to Northumbria Police and has also previously served as a lifeboat crew member. In 2010 he received an MBE for his services to public.
