Camilla Cavendish's Biography

Camilla Cavendish is a respected journalist and commentator with a particular interest in social and healthcare issues.

In 2013 Camilla was commissioned by the British Department of Health to lead an independent review into healthcare assistance in the NHS and carehomes.

An Associate Editor, columnist and leader writer for The Times, she was awarded the 2008 Paul Foot Award for campaigning journalism. In 2009 she was also awarded “Campaigning Journalist of the Year” at the British Press Awards. Camilla won the awards for her writings in The Times about the child protection injustices which she claimed resulted from the Children Act 1989 and the practices of family courts dealing with child protection issues. Her campaign convinced the Secretary of State for Justice Jack Straw to introduce legislation which opened the family courts to the media in 2009.

She has worked as a McKinsey management consultant, an aid worker, and as an aide to the CEO of Pearson Plc. She helped to found the lobby group London First, and was the first CEO of the not-for-profit trust South Bank Employers’ Group, which masterminded the regeneration of the South Bank of the Thames in the late 1990s.
