An interview with Shona Campbell

We thought this powerful interview with the wonderful Shona Campbell was too important not to share on its own.

Richard Harris interviews Shona Campbell, co-founder and Chair of Trustees for Friends for Families. Shona talks us through why she started the charity and the vital work they do. She also provides sobering insight of the what she describes as the unseen ‘Dickensian’ levels of poverty in Sevenoaks that some children endure.

In Sevenoaks, over 20% of children live in poverty.

Taking into account that shocking statistic, Shona explains how the small charity, staffed entirely by volunteers, works with local Children’s Services to support those children and families who are suffering the most.
