North East, Yorkshire and the Humber

Fiona Richards"We have six service centres in the North East, Yorkshire and the Humber region delivering a wide range of services to help support and protect children and families. Our experienced practitioners provide innovative services and programmes to some of the most vulnerable children, young people and families across the region."

"This includes services that help children whose lives have been harmed by sexual abuse or neglect, children who are in care (looked after children), those who are at risk of physical abuse and children from minority ethnic communities. We couldn't deliver these services without the ongoing support and commitment of our supporters, including volunteers, corporate partners and fundraising groups, who help make a real difference to children's lives."
