Achieving for Children

Work for us

Achieving for Children is a not-for-profit social enterprise created by the boroughs of Kingston upon Thames and Richmond upon Thames to provide their children’s services. In 2017, Windsor and Maidenhead joined us. We now deliver children’s services across all three boroughs.

Ofsted has graded us Outstanding for our services in Kingston.

As a social enterprise we are able to provide children’s social care and education support services to other local authorities, schools and partners in the education, health, social care and criminal justice sectors.

We are different. We have a public sector ethos, combined with the freedom to innovate and do things differently.

We’re always looking for bright, enthusiastic people who have the passion and the drive to make a positive difference to children’s lives.

“At AfC we value and trust our people because we know it’s our people who truly make the difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in society. We try and provide an environment and culture that brings the best out of talented staff. The work we do is challenging, but we support each other and celebrate and recognise achievements.”
– Ian Dodds, Managing Director at the time, in an article published on Third Sectors Jobs in 2018.
