Influencing the way people think and behave


We work with children’s services professionals at all levels and across all agencies, helping them to change and improve the way they respond to vulnerable children and their families.


We work at local and national level, developing strategies for new ways of working and project managing initiatives that translate policies into practice.


We conduct small-scale service reviews, work with university partners on quantitative and qualitative research studies, and advise agencies conducting their own audits and evaluations.

Making a difference to services for vulnerable children and families

Working together as RyanTunnardBrown for over 10 years, we bring to our work a unique combination of skills and experience in social work, law, education, policy and research. All our work is informed by a particular analytical framework, which we know is effective in changing the way professionals think and behave.

Our aim is to help organisations make a tangible difference to children’s lives and life chances.

Our wide-ranging knowledge and experience have given us clear insights into the essential ingredients of work with children and families.
