Do You Want To Be Part of It?
Leeds is a great place to be. As one of Britain’s largest cities, it is a great place to live and work, with a vibrant city centre and fantastic culture and leisure opportunities. We have made amazing improvements to Children’s Services and are building on this with a re-design of our children’s social work service to be organised to work in and with communities around clusters of schools.
Our vision is to ensure that vulnerable children and young people in the city receive excellent social work services to keep them safe and to make sure they reach their full potential. We are responding to the challenges we face with energy and innovation.
We are continuing our commitment to further improve our services supported by the Council with increased investment. We are strengthening our capacity to deliver high quality services.
