What we do
We develop, influence and shape national policy on all aspects of the lives of children, young people and families. As the Government’s strategic partner for early years and childcare we have a crucial role in co-producing policy with the Department of Education and representing the sector’s views and experiences.

Our national campaigns, such as Give Me Strength, change policy and practice and put the needs of children and families on the political and policy agenda.

4Children also delivers childcare, family support and youth services across more than 100 settings, including children’s centres, nurseries, schools and RAF bases. As one of the largest not for profit Children’s Centre providers in the country we believe that children and families should be at the heart of our society and actively involved in shaping the decisions about the services they need. We also deliver and support out of school programmes and the new generation of ‘myplace’ youth hubs.

4Children’s Business Development team works with statutory, voluntary and private sector partners and communities to improve outcomes for children and families through a growing portfolio of projects.

4Children provides practical information, advice and support to parents, employers, local authorities and the children’s and youth services workforce through our Information Helpline, publications, website and national conferences and events.
