Description

Estelle Morris meets Camila Batmanghelidjh, founder and director of Kids Company, an innovative charity offering emotional and educational support to vulnerable young people.

Camila talks about her own life, her struggle to overcome dyslexia, and what it was like in the early days of establishing the inner-city charity. She describes the work of Kids Company, explaining how it sits beside the education system and within society as a whole.

A trained psychotherapist, Camila discusses the issue of mental health in challenging children, and the scientific advances which are shaping the therapeutic support the charity provides.
