THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL ATTEND
THE ANNA FREUD NATIONAL CENTRE GALA DINNER

The Orangery, Kensington Palace

Tuesday 7th November

The Duchess of Cambridge, will attend the 2017 Gala Dinner for The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families (AFNCCF), held in The Orangery at Kensington Palace.

Earlier this year Her Royal Highness, who is Patron of the AFNCCF, visited the centre’s Early Years Parenting Unit to learn more about their work with families who have children under five years old. This visit marked The Duchess’ continued desire to draw attention to child mental health issues and the importance that early intervention, and working with the whole family, can make to those in vulnerable situations.

The AFNCCF is campaigning for a step change in children’s mental health and is building a new Centre of Excellence which will bring together people and organisations in mental health, education, social care and neuroscience alongside children and families often in vulnerable situations. At the heart of this new campus will be The Family School for children aged between 5-14 who have been excluded from mainstream education, which will combine mental health care and education.

During the Gala, The Duchess will attend a reception to hear more about this project and the work of the AFNCCF from those who are closely involved in the Charity. Her Royal Highness will also meet with some of the charity’s service users, including families who have benefitted from the work of the organisation.
