Children's Services: Our Story

In Worcestershire we are working together to ensure all our children and young people are healthy, feel safe and have opportunities to enjoy their lives and reach their full potential. 

In partnership with our frontline staff and the people we support, we have developed a detailed plan of improvement which has children at its heart and which is built around eight points. 

To drive this plan forward we recognise that we need a committed, stable workforce. We will offer you inspiring leadership, clear goals, excellent training and learning opportunities, and high quality support and resources. We need social workers who can in turn inspire and safeguard their clients and residents, and who aspire to reach the highest standards.
