Britain’s first parent-led review of children’s social care is holding an online event tomorrow, where attendees can ask members of the review team any questions they wish about the review.

The “Ask Us Anything” online conference follows the launch of the Best Interests of the Child Review (BIC) on 20th November, World Children’s Day.

The hour-long event will be introduced and hosted by BIC’s lead, Michele Simmons, who is a care experienced mother. She will be joined by review team members Simon Haworth and ourselves.

During the conference, attendees can ask any members of the review team questions about the review, such as how it will be run, what projects it will work on and any other questions related to the review which guests might want to ask.

The conference will take place on Wednesday 1 December, 2021 from 5pm to 6pm on Zoom.

If you would like to attend the event, please email the review team at to receive information about how to access the conference.

Please confirm you would like to attend the event in your message, and let us know if you are a care-experienced child or parent, social care stakeholder, government affiliate, academic, journalist or member of the public.

We look forward to welcoming you.
