You will have an appropriate professional qualification / relevant degree, with substantial experience and a track record in collaborative working in services for children and young people.

Does this sound like you? We are working across the country, at local and national level, to help realise The Promise of the Independent Care Review. Change is happening. Be part of it. Together we can make things better for children, young people and their families and carers..
