BACCH is a professional membership organisation for doctors and other professionals working in paediatrics and child health in the community. It is the largest specialty group of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. 

Our members work mostly in non-acute settings and have expertise in working with vulnerable groups of children and their carers. This includes children with developmental disorders and disabilities, those with complex behavioural issues and those who are at risk of abuse or are being abused. They also have a particular role with children who are “Looked After” or are in the process of being adopted.

We achieve our mission through: 

  • Enhancing training and working practices of all those working with children and their families in their communities; 
  • Encouraging greater collaboration with other disciplines, agencies and professional bodies concerned with the health of children and their families; 
  • Promoting research related to the health of children and their families and disseminating the useful results; 
  • Serving as an advocate for children and their families through professional, academic and other channels

Membership is open to all professionals working in child health (and affliate membership for others interested in our aims). Visit our membership page for information on how to join.
