Over 700,000 children in England rely on the support of social workers each year.

These children need and deserve the support of life-changing social work professionals who can empower them to achieve their full potential and help to break the cycle of trauma and disadvantage.

Our vision

is a society where no child’s life chances are limited by their social or family circumstance.

Our mission

is to create social change for children who do not have a safe or stable home, by developing excellent social work practice and leadership.

We recruit, train and support people to become social workers. This is a unique opportunity for high potential graduates and career changers to make a real difference to the lives of some of the most disadvantaged children in England.
Social work managers are the engines for transformational practice in social work. The Firstline programme develops good social work managers into outstanding leaders to give the best possible support to disadvantaged families.
To address social disadvantage, we need leaders working across society to create real and lasting change for children and families. The Frontline Fellowship is a community of like-minded individuals, who have all received training from Frontline and are working to change society for the better.
