See the Child, Change the System campaign aims to mobilise the public to bring together a group of leading thinkers in the country to create a better child mental health and social work system.

It follows a report from the Centre for Social Justice, commissioned by Kids Company, which found 'systematic failure, crisis and despair among professionals'.

Ms Batmanghelidjh said, 'This is a social action initiative driven by resolute action to change the system and make it fit for purpose. It is unforgivable for one of the leading nations of the world not to have prioritised the protection and treatment of its most vulnerable children.'
