Children’s Social Care

We care deeply about the families we work with and put the welfare and life chances of children and young people at the heart of everything we do.


Local Assessment Protocol

Understanding how local thresholds and assessments work will help professionals to be clear about what to expect from Children’s Services and will enable services to work better together to create safety, stability and support for children, young people and their families.
