Action for Change

Who we are

Action for Change is a service for birth parents who have had their children removed permanently from their care. The service aims to prevent recurrent care proceedings by helping birth parents to have a better understanding of the reasons for the previous removal and help manage the consequences of having a child removed from their care.

We are a service that work across Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and Westminster City Council. We are a team of multi-disciplinary practitioners using therapeutic and outreach interventions to engage with parents on a one-to-one basis and as part of a group.
