This study takes a participatory research approach to build a single case study from three interviews undertaken with one individual who had experienced being in care first-hand, and who has subsequently been employed in the care system. Interview material was thematically analysed. Critical discussions generated suggestions relating to concerns expressed about highly regulated approaches to care and how continuity of care might be improved through enhanced recruitment processes.
