We work to understand and influence the external environment. This includes developing evidence-based policy positions, responding to government consultations, providing evidence to parliament, and informing stakeholders of key developments.
We also partner with like-minded voluntary organisations through coalitions and networks, combining expertise and experience to drive positive change.
The All Party Parliamentary Group for Children
NCB also runs the All Party Parliamentary Group for Children (APPGC), a group of MPs and Peers from all political parties working together to improve children’s policy.
The APPGC recently held an inquiry into social care.
Last year it held an inquiry into the relationship between children and the police, which led to significant changes to policy and police practice.
