Children and young people

We work with local authorities, charities and government to explore new approaches to improving the life chances of children and young people.

We develop and manage programmes which apply investment to drive improved outcomes in behaviour, education, and employment prospects. We make the business case for change to shift resources towards prevention and to ensure that prevention and early intervention services are effective.

We have pioneered social impact bonds in children’s services, investing in therapeutic support to prevent adolescents spending time in the care system and rebuilding stronger family relationships. We manage social impact bonds across the country that fund charities to work with young people to improve their educational attainment, and employment prospects, while also addressing their housing needs.
