Abstract:

This research studied the model of intervention of Kids Company, a third sector organisation in the UK funded in 1996 with the primary purpose of supporting some of the most vulnerable children, young people and their families, who experience severe developmental adversity, being exposed to food insecurity, poverty, poor housing, violence and social exclusion, abuse and substance misuse, low educational and employment aspirations, domestic maltreatment and unstable home environments. It reviewed available evidence on the impact of Kids Company on its clients and investigated the internal structure of the organisation and its interventions. This research found that the Kids Company model achieves much for its clients. Its commitment and open-door policy have guaranteed provision and support for thousands of children, however, the company needs support from society and from the state to continue developing the excellence of its overall model whereby people in need respond to structures of support and their vision.
