We believe all children should have the foundational relationships they need to thrive in life. By researching and evaluating the effectiveness of family support services and interventions, we’re generating the actionable evidence needed to improve them, so more vulnerable children can live safely and happily at home and lead happier, healthier lives.
We’re providing the answers and practical solutions that empower decision makers and difference makers to improve policy and practice on family support, so the right actions are taken at the right times, and every child has the foundations they need to reach their full potential.
Foundations was formed through the merger of What Works for Children’s Social Care (WWCSC) and the Early Intervention Foundation (EIF) in December 2022, bringing together two sister organisations with a shared mission to use high quality evidence to improve the lives of vulnerable children.
