"2023 was a challenging year but we’ve achieved a huge amount. There are so many great examples of excellent work from a wide range of groups that it is a real pleasure to acknowledge and celebrate. I am truly proud of what we have collectively achieved and the impact we are making on children’s health and wellbeing, both in the UK and internationally."

"The College is an enormous force for good nationally and internationally. We are successful because of the hard work and dedication put in by the vibrant community of members, children and young people, staff, and trustees working together. The College is unique and the Annual Review vividly shows why."
