What do we do?
The directorate has statutory responsibility for leadership within and beyond the Council, to make changes in practice to improve outcomes for all children and young people. The directorate must also listen to and involve children and young people and champion their interests across and beyond the Council.
The directorate of children’s services aims to deliver integrated services to children and young people.
Much of our work is undertaken in conjunction with a wide range of partners including other statutory agencies and the voluntary and private sector.
