What we do

To make England the best place in the world to grow up, we lead workforce reform, improving chances for children and young people throughout the country.

In short, we join up the way different agencies work, and bring consistency to the way children and young people are listened to and looked after. We are the voice of employers and we make sure their concerns, experiences and views directly influence workforce reform.

Our decisions and actions are informed by constant dialogue with employers, the workforce, children, young people and their families, as well as high quality research.
