National Children's Bureau (NCB)

The NCB is a strong voice for children and young people, champions their rights and reduces the impact of inequalities, so that every child, especially the most vulnerable, can grow up safe, happy and healthy.

They focus on four integrated areas:

  • Disability/SEN
  • Early Years
  • Education & learning
  • Health & Social Care

The work is delivered via four core activities:

  • Research & Evidence
  • Practice Improvement
  • Policy Influencing
  • Partnerships

The NCB works with children, and for children, to reduce the devastating impact of childhood inequalities by:

  • being a strong independent advocate for children and young people
  • ensuring that government policies and legislation have a positive impact on their lives
  • being a voice for practitioners and supporting them to deliver the very best outcomes for children and young people
  • bringing together groups and organisations, to achieve more by working in partnership
  • involving children and young people so they are able to make a difference to their lives
  • providing the evidence from research, analysis and practice to make the case for change.
