The National Children's Bureau (NCB) is a children's charity based in Islington, London. It was founded in 1963 (as the National Bureau for Cooperation in Child Care. It is an umbrella organisation incorporating councils and fora that explore a range of issues involving children and young people.

Dr Hilary Emery joined NCB as it's new Chief Executive in August 2011, prior to that Paul Ennals had been NCB's Chief Executive since 1998. Baroness Shireen Ritchie has been President of NCB since November 2010. [1]

NCB aims to:

  • challenge disadvantage in childhood
  • work with children and young people to ensure they are involved in all matters that affect their lives
  • promote multidisciplinary cross-agency partnerships and good practice
  • influence government policy through policy development and advocacy
  • undertake high quality research and work from an evidence-based perspective
  • disseminate information to all those working with children and young people, and to children and young people themselves

Children & Society and Children & Young People Now are a journal and a magazine published in association with the NCB.

NCB supports over two dozen websites, including sites run by councils and networks within NCB and others run on a partnership or consortium basis.
