"I congratulate BAAF on the quality and effectiveness of their publications. They are well researched, clear, informative and unwaveringly focused on the wellbeing of children and families. They are also so imaginatively presented it becomes impossible not to be drawn into them. This is a great achievement and I wish BAAF continued success in this important work".
