Achieving for Children (AfC) is a not-for-profit social enterprise created in 2014 by the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames to provide their children’s services. In August 2017, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead became a co-owner of AfC, and we now deliver children’s services across all three boroughs.
We strive to achieve excellence in everything we do by putting children and young people first in the design, delivery and evaluation of every service we provide, to ensure that they are supported to live safe, happy, healthy and successful lives. Our broad service offer is informed by leading practice and a strong evidence-base of what works best. It is guided by our daily work with children and young people and the organisations that work with us to help and support them.
Our focus is always on maximising the use of resources by creating economies of scale and reducing management and overhead costs so that we can ensure high-quality frontline services that really deliver results.
We continually seek to strengthen our offer by learning from innovation and investing in the skills and professional abilities of our workforce.
