Britain’s first parent-led Truth Commission looking at children’s social care is holding its monthly Zoom meeting on Wednesday 14th September from 6pm to 7pm.

Attendees can get involved with the work of the commission and ask its members any questions they wish about the commission during these calls. We’d love you to join us.

This month we’re holding our regular session for families affected by the child protection system, in which we share updates about the Commission’s work and ask for your feedback and suggestions.

In addition to our usual agenda, we will also be offering information and support on how to deal with the impact of the cost of living crisis. The commission understands that this group of families are likely to be among some of the most affected by the crisis, and we want to help.

The commission will answer questions, find resources and offer ideas on how to ease the financial, psychological and emotional burdens associated with the crisis for families.

During the event you will also be able to ask commission lead Michele Simmons, and commission team members Simon Haworth and Natasha Phillips (Researching Reform) questions and provide feedback about the commission’s current projects.

The call will take place on Wednesday 14th September from 6pm to 7pm on Zoom.

If you would like to attend the event, please email the team at The team will also give you 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.
