Wed 16 May
CAMILA BATMANGHELIDJH – on child protection in Britain.
What was the thinking and founding spirit behind Kids Company? What was its model of care for thousands of vulnerable children? Who were its true supporters? What was lost when it imploded? How well do established children’s services serve vulnerable and disadvantaged children? Any other questions?
Founder of Kids Company, a charity which worked with marginalised children and young people, once named one of the 100 most powerful women in the UK, appointed an honorary CBE for services to children and young people, Camila Batmanghelidjh is co-author, with award-winning journalist Tim Rayment, of Kids – child protection in Britain: the truth, which both explains a few things and looks forward, to show how even the most troubled young lives can be turned around by a new model of support that is far more effective than existing provision.
