SFPC is a five-year Department for Education (DfE) programme to support local authorities to improve their work with families and safely reduce the number of children entering care by implementing successful three sector-designed innovations – Leeds Family Valued, North Yorkshire No Wrong Door, and Hertfordshire Family Safeguarding. Mutual Ventures is a support partner for the Programme.
