Achieving for Children

Congratulations to our Chief Executive

Congratulations to our Chief Executive, Nick Whitfield, who this week received his CBE at Buckingham Palace. He was given the award for services to children and young people.

When his award was announced in the New Year Honours Nick said: “It is a great honour to receive this award. However, I believe that this accolade really recognises the hard work and the huge team effort of all my colleagues at Achieving for Children. In difficult financial circumstances and rising demand for services, they work tirelessly every day to improve and protect the lives of children in many boroughs across the country.

“From social workers to the teachers in our excellent schools, I would like to thank everyone that I have worked with since 2008. AfC makes a difference to so many children’s lives every day. This is thanks to you.”
