Key areas of work

We believe in making positive, lasting differences for children and young people. To do that, the people, organisations and systems that touch their lives need to be properly supported and trained, and encouraged to gain a deep understanding of how making a difference really pays off.

Our highly experienced staff share their specialist knowledge and skills with a wide range of partners by delivering a unique package of services in numerous areas of expertise, including: permanence, throughcare and aftercare, education, health and wellbeing, historical abuse and international.
