Children’s Services:- we want to ensure that the city invests in early family support and parenting. We are determined to ensure the whole of the GCHSCP, in tandem with colleagues in Education, are co-ordinated for the maximum benefit of every family.

We are seeking individuals who understand and share these visions.
