Some initiatives underway or in the pipeline include;

  • An intensive therapeutic edge of care service
  • An innovative and enhanced approach to our front door management of referrals
  • 0-19 integrated early help service
  • Alternative models of delivery for our schools and education support services
  • Smaller systemic SW practice group model
  • Strengthening our in-house foster care service
  • Bid for a 16-25 multi-agency 24hr Care Leavers service

  • A children's workforce and leadership academy
And we want your ideas too!
