This is an inspiring story of what one church can achieve. 30 years ago, Caring For Life began as a local Christian response to the desperate needs of vulnerable young men in Leeds, struggling to adapt to life beyond the care system. From this small beginning it rapidly expanded to offer lifelong support to over 100 men and women of all ages who had fallen into homelessness, criminality and addiction.
Juliet Barker told the remarkable story of the charity's first ten years in 'The Deafening Sound of Silent Tears'. Now, for its 30th anniversary, she tells of the miraculous transformation that has made the charity's home, Crag House Farm, a state of the art horticultural, agricultural, equestrian, therapeutic and adult learning centre - all in the face of funding cuts and fears of closure.
All royalties go to Caring For Life and its work of mending broken lives.
