The Service
Our service is operating as good and looking forward to the forthcoming ILACS inspection where we can demonstrate the strength and development of the service. We have a commitment to ensuring that we have the right capacity, capability and environment for our workforce and to achieving outcomes for children and young people we work with. This is an exciting time to join the team.
Our revised operating model sees smaller teams enabling increased managerial oversight and support to social workers.
Ofsted inspection and Social Work Health Checks have reported a positive morale and confidence in management vision and leadership of the services.
