Welcome to another week.

Following the launch of the Best Interests of the Child review (BIC) on Saturday, we’re sharing the project’s testimonials page, which features children’s and their families’ experiences of social care in Britain.

Several of the testimonials are heart breaking. Many more will resonate with our readers. But they are all important experiences highlighting how children’s social care in England and Wales affects children and their families.

If you would like to add your experience to BIC’s testimonials page, you can share it with BIC using their contact form. or email the review at contactbicreview@gmail.com.

Please help the review by keeping testimonials to a maximum of 500 words, so that it can include as many experiences as possible on the site, and place the word ‘TESTIMONIAL’ at the top of the message. Thank you.

The BIC testimonials page can be found here.
