How we do business
Achieving for Children is a community interest company created by the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames to provide their children’s services.
In most circumstances commissioners and providers are separate to one another; however Achieving for Children’s unique position as a community interest company means we are able to provide services directly and commission others to deliver services on our behalf.

Achieving for Children works together with many organisations and local people in a range of partnerships. We are committed to commissioning jointly with our partners. Excellent children’s services cannot be delivered in isolation and we regularly work with health services, the police and schools to identify ways of commissioning services together so duplication is reduced, resources are pooled and better value for money is found.
We aim to develop new relationships with organisations such as the voluntary and community sector, which would be of benefit to Achieving for Children and to children, young people and their families. This is particularly relevant where there is demand for services which are outside the expertise of our company. We aim to improve communication with these groups and be clear about the commissioning opportunities available.
