Remarks made by The Duchess of Cambridge at the Anna Freud Centre ‘Centre of Excellence’ Opening
Each of you, in your own words, and in your own way, have explained why this matters so much, and how passionate you are about the Anna Freud Centre. What you have said really brings its work to life.
We are all here today because we care so much about transforming the mental health of children, young people, and their families.
I have learnt so much about early childhood development and the importance of support for parents through your work here at the Anna Freud Centre. This is something I really do care about.
The ambition for the new Kantor Centre of Excellence is hugely inspiring. The bringing together of research, education, practice and policy, all in one place, will take Anna Freud Centre’s mission to the next level. It is testament to what can be achieved when people work together to realise a shared vision.
Thank you all for playing your part in creating this amazing new facility. I am delighted to be here and hugely proud to share this moment with you, and to open The Anna Freud Centre’s National Centre for Excellence.
