are you worried about a child? find out who to talk to.


Official statistics show that looked after children do far less well at school and when they leave school than other children from similar backgrounds. We say this is a simply unacceptable situation. Our key goal is to play a big part in narrowing the educational attainment gap for all looked after children.

We believe in building on the rich capacities, skills and aspirations of all looked after children. We work with teachers, carers and other professionals to ensure that every child receives the high quality and well rounded education they deserve. That way, we will close the gap completely.
