Frontline’s mission is to transform the lives of vulnerable children and families through recruiting and developing outstanding individuals to be leaders in social work and broader society.

At least half a million children in England don’t have a safe or stable home. These children and their families face some of the worst life chances, but we know that great social work has the power to change this. That’s why Frontline recruits and develops outstanding individuals to be social workers and leaders to transform the lives of the most vulnerable children and families.

Frontline’s two-year Leadership Development programme offers an exciting new route into one of Britain’s most challenging and rewarding professions: child protection social work.
