A debate taking place on the 20th November will see Sharon Shoesmith, former director of Haringey’s children services (and the lady in charge during the Baby P tragedy) and Camila Batmanghelidjh of the excellent Kids Company, talking about best practice.

But you won’t be able to attend unless you’re a social worker or other permitted title holder (entry is free for these folks) or you’re prepared to pay around £200 for the privilege. We imagine this might dissuade any disgruntled members of the public from asking Shoesmith what she actually knows about best practice, however it should be an interesting event.

Professor Ray Jones CBE, will also be speaking at the event.
