We are delighted to announce that independent publisher Pinter & Martin is to publish The Children’s Inquiry: How the state and society failed the young during the Covid-19 pandemic by UsForThem’s Liz Cole and Molly Kingsley in June 2022.
With exclusive testimony from academics, politicians, scientists, educators, and parents, as well as former Children’s Commissioners, the book provides an unfettered account of the problems at the heart of policymaking which led to the systemic and ongoing betrayal of children.
From public health to politics, and from media discourse to safeguarding, the book shows how children were too often used as the means to further adult interests.
Ahead of the public inquiry, we are calling for an honest appraisal of what went wrong, and commitment from stakeholders to reimagine – not just recover – childhood.
