E-TANGATA interview with Shayne Walker

Thursday 7 May 2020 4:01pm

"Shayne Walker’s exceptional work as a foster parent and social worker earned him a well-deserved place on this year’s New Year’s Honours List, for an ONZM. The senior lecturer in social work at Otago University is a former state ward who became a foster dad to nearly 200 boys. And in this kōrero with Dale, he talks about the demands — and rewards — of that work, especially when undertaken on the epic scale that he opted for." (E-Tangata, 2020)
