We work with children’s services - social care, youth justice, education and health - in England and Wales, with central government departments, and with a wide range of voluntary organisations.
Although our current work reflects the changing themes and concerns in children’s services, our approach and our aims stay the same – to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of vulnerable children.
We are part of a small team of project managers for 20 London local authorities working in clusters – together with the courts, CAFCASS, lawyers and providers of assessments – to reduce unnecessary delay for children who are the subject of care proceedings.

We co-ordinated the work of the 8 children’s charities reviewing the evidence about what is effective in securing a sense of permanence for children who cannot live with their parents. The final report describes the activities of the Inquiry, including sessions involving over 200 adult participants and a national consultation exercise with 100 children and young people.

“Your report is excellent. We couldn’t have imagined you would discover so much, so quickly. You spoke to everyone who was relevant, you analysed what they said, and you have given us some important recommendations to implement.” CAMHS commissioner
