We are determined to give every child in this country the greatest possible chance in life.

BraveWe are brave, fighting injustice at every level, fearless in our determination to be listened to. We expose and directly address ‘hard truths’ and are determined to turn words swiftly into actions.

AmbitiousWe are ambitious for the lives of the children we work with. The pioneering work we do helps them and children across the country aspire to better lives.

SupportiveWe support children in their personal development and to build positive relationships. Together we enable children to reach their full potential and realise their ambitions.

TrustedWe have been trusted for over a century to deliver care where it is most needed. We maintain that trust by being dependable and consistent in our approach and by fighting for change based on hard evidence
