WE ARE LIVED EXPERIENCE LEADERS WHO ENGAGE, INSPIRE AND SUPPORT TRANSFORMATION FOR CHILDREN'S SERVICES
Children deserve to leave services in a better place than when they entered; it is within our power to make this happen.
We don’t just understand children's services.
Our leaders have lived through them.
Our leaders have both professional and personal experience of children’s services and have supported the development of some of the UK’s most innovative projects, connecting leaders with lived experience; co-designing new services; created organisational visions and new models of youth participation.
Ten years’ experience across multiple organisations and projects has shown us the value of an external voice, a new perspective and close partnership working in enabling change. That is why we work with you in the way we do to support your organisation’s developmental ambitions.

North Yorkshire County Council – No Wrong Door
The Fostering Network – Mockingbird Family Model
The House Project – Care Leavers National Movement
Innovation Unit – Make York Home
Middlesbrough Borough Council – Middlesbrough Children Matter
Department for Education – Children’s Social Care Innovation Fund
