NCB is the leading national charity which supports children, young people and families and those who work with them. Our vision is a society in which children and young people are valued, their rights respected and responsibilities enhanced; our mission, to advance the well-being of children and young people across every aspect of their lives.
Our research and policy work helps us understand the precise needs of children and young people today, and to inform fundamental decisions relating to policy and practice across the sector. Developing a robust evidence base is integral to this. We achieve this through a range of high quality research projects that identify and fill gaps in evidence, uncover unknown needs, and identify what works and why.
