Children's services

The pressures on children’s social care are unrelenting, with increasing demand and constant strain on budgets.

Local authorities face a range of day-to-day challenges including difficulty in recruitment and retention of social workers, the high cost of placements for looked after children, and growing demands from SEND.

We can support councils to develop innovative approaches to tackling these issues, based on deep knowledge and experience of children's services.
