About Our Organisation

The Centre for Young Lives, founded by Anne Longfield CBE, is dedicated to improving the lives of children, young people, and families in the UK. Our focus spans from early intervention to empowering vulnerable youth. We address systemic issues, such as poverty, mental health, and education disparities, advocating for reform and a new social contract. Born from the Commission on Young Lives, we collaborate with like-minded organisations.
