We’d like to introduce our organisation to you.

Key Assets – The Children’s Services Provider was established in 2007.  A social enterprise underpinned by strong values and a commitment to improving outcomes for children and young people across the world.  Through social impact investment from Jim Cockburn, the pioneering founder of the UK’s leading children’s services provider, The Core Assets Group, and in partnership with local innovative and experienced child care professionals, services have been established across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Europe and North America.  Led by founding Chief Executive Officer, Estella Abraham and working with local Directors the initial vision was to establish quality foster care services for children and young people who were difficult to place.  The confidence to develop this service was borne out of the experience of developing foster care services in the Republic of Ireland in 2005 and recognising the positive impact this had in terms of creating additional placement choice for government sector partners.

Extending to Western Australia and New Zealand simultaneously in 2007 was a huge challenge and indicative of our commitment to innovate and respond.  We were not content with a single demonstration project or service and so the urgency was to create an international footprint and our pace of development became important to establish presence and brand.  Our cultural sensitivity, demonstration of quality and business acumen success has been recognised through confidence in contracting by government and non-government partners and through award accolades.

More than a decade later our global reach has expanded and we are operating in 8 countries (see map) and delivering the full continuum of care and related services.  We provide services to over 2000 children and young people and our workforce is made up of 1800 staff and foster carers.

Our commitment to capacity building in vulnerable communities is underpinned through our partnerships with For Our Children (Bulgaria), the Martin James Foundation (UK), the Centre for Excellence in Alternative Care (India) and the Nippon Foundation (Japan).  We also recognise the importance of research and evidence based practice which led our founder to fund development of the Rees Centre at Oxford University.

Our services include out of home care (foster care, Kinship care, Sibling Group Care, Therapeutic family based placements and Therapeutic Residential Care Services), intensive family support services (Edge of Care), Services to children with disabilities and other related support services.
