Financial abuse of older people by charities and religious institutions
Mark’s latest work explores the complex and hidden world of how older people donate to religious organisations.
Mark identifies that clergy are perhaps the only professional group that has ‘Shipman-like’ access to older people, and raises the need for external scrutiny of clergy who inherit money and property from their congregation.
Mark’s career has focused on working with vulnerable and older people, split equally between time spent in practice and in the higher education sector.
He has owned and run a number of social care businesses, and has also worked in consultancy roles, closing down failing services and managing organisational reconfiguration.Dr Mark RedmondSenior Lecturer in Social Care
