A few years later, Quarriers Village was opened, providing a refuge to the abandoned and the orphaned in the rolling fields of Renfrewshire. Since these beginnings, Quarriers has cared for over 40,000 children in need. It now runs a diverse range of support and care programs for children, adults and families in 85 projects across Britain.

Here, Anna Magnusson explores the stories of the people of Quarriers past and present, and celebrates the achievements of the charity over the last century. The result is a detailed record of the organizations evolution and an inspiring story of one mans legacy.
