The Anna Freud Centre

The Family School London is sponsored by the Anna Freud Centre, a charity with over 60 years’ experience of working with children and families experiencing mental health problems.

The Anna Freud Centre’s vision is a world in which children and their families are supported to build on their own strengths to achieve their goals in life.

The Centre cares for young minds in three main ways:

  • Developing and providing innovative treatments for mental health problems
  • Carrying out cutting-edge research and evaluation
  • Offering world-class teaching and training courses
