We are proud to be part of the National Children’s Bureau (NCB), a leading children’s charity working to build a better childhood for every child.
NCB champion children’s right to be safe, secure and supported, by using evidence and their expert knowledge to influence government policy, and help practitioners to do the best job possible, especially for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people.
How they do it
They achieve this by listening to children and young people and working with those supporting them to build evidence on what needs to be done to enable children to fulfil their right to a safe, secure and supported childhood, so they can flourish and achieve their potential.
Using their research they influence policy and legislation and call for improvements in practice to be implemented in schools, hospitals and children’s services across the country.
Together with CDC we support practitioners working directly with children and young people by providing practical guidance, information and training, helping them to do the best job possible, especially for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children.
Part of the NCB Family
CDC are just one of several specialist interest groups and networks who are part of the NCB family. The other groups include the Anti-Bullying Alliance, the Childhood Bereavement Network, the Sex Education Forum and the Lambeth Early Action Partnership(LEAP). We all operate under NCB’s charitable status and are based at their London headquarters in Islington.
