Collaborations and partnerships

Collaborations and partnerships are crucial to our research. Our research units and collaborative projects pool expertise around particular priorities or areas of work.

We collaborate with academic institutions to carry out research and we partner with national and international organisations committed to improving the mental health and wellbeing of children and families to maximise our impact. Staff at Anna Freud chair and sit on expert groups and committees seeking to investigate and improve the mental health of children, young people and families and the support available to them.
