The NCMD team is delighted to announce that Anna Freud has joined our programme.

We are pleased to announce that children’s charity Anna Freud has joined the NCMD Programme. As the newest partner in the NCMD programme, Anna Freud will join quality improvement experts UCLPartners and existing charity partners Sands, Child Bereavement UK and The Lullaby Trust.

The mission of Anna Freud is to close the gap in wellbeing and mental health by advancing, translating, delivering and sharing the best science and practice with everyone who impacts the lives of children and families. With this expertise, it is expected that the organization will contribute to the quality improvement strand of the NCMD’s work.

Vicky Sleap, Deputy Director of the NCMD, said: “We are excited to have Anna Freud joining us as part of the team at NCMD. Their expertise will help to ensure that the learning and recommendations highlighted by this programme of work are disseminated widely and professionals are supported to put them into practice across the multi-agency landscape.”
