As a charity, we work to ensure that the life chances of children who don’t have a safe and stable home are not limited by their social or family circumstance, and that they do not remain trapped in a cycle of disadvantage. We do this by developing excellent social work practice and leadership through our programmes. The Frontline programme brings new and diverse talent into the social work profession and through the Firstline and Headline programmes, we develop the leadership skills of experienced social workers.
Crucially however, we also work to bring change and innovation to the social work system and the broader community. The Fellowship is our innovative and ambitious network of social workers who have completed one of our programmes (fellows). It enables fellows to apply their leadership further to achieve our mission to creating social change for children with a safe or stable home. Our fellows are provided with the necessary encouragement, skills and support to develop new practices and new community organisations, to become vocal champions for change, and to advocate for local or national policy improvement.
The Fellowship is funded entirely by philanthropic grants and donations and this work would not be possible without the generosity of corporates, trusts and individual supporters.
Our valued partners

“Credit Suisse EMEA Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged young people and we see great social work as vital to achieving this. Since Frontline’s inception, we have seen the impact of their programmes to create long-term change in children’s social work and have been fortunate to meet with social workers on their programmes to hear about the life-changing work that they do. Their growing network of fellows will continue Frontline’s legacy of change and will help to create a better system and a fairer society for children and families.”

“The AKO Foundation believes that education is the key to a successful future both for individuals and for societies as a whole. However, children who need social work support are less likely to do well in school or advance into higher education. Frontline are at the heart of tackling this issue by creating social change for children who do not have a safe or stable home, by developing excellent social work practice and leadership. Through this, they aim to break the cycle of disadvantage and support children to reach their full potential which is an objective we share. Since partnering with the charity in 2018, we have had the chance to visit participants in local authorities and hear first-hand about the complex work social workers do with children and families, all to ensure no child’s life chances are limited by their social or family circumstance.”
