Make a lasting difference with us

Our expert advice and consultancy services can help you work more efficiently, effectively and successfully with and for children and young people.

Today, with funding in short supply, doing more with less is the new reality for children’s services.

Local authorities are actively looking for innovative new ways to both meet local need and reduce cost.

And with full focus on what works most effectively, we’re here to offer local consultancy that delivers best practice to make a real and lasting difference for children.


Consultancy services

We offer individually tailored and priced packages to train local authority teams, partner agencies or other local professionals – all those responsible for commissioning services or working with children – to enable them to understand and deliver high-quality, effective results that keep children safe and provide evidence of best practice.

We can work with your management teams and practitioners on:

  • Developing strategies and policies to guide your work.

  • Evaluating what you’re doing.
  • Training all levels of staff.
