We’re uniting to make the biggest difference we’ve ever made
Children matter. It’s a simple statement, but one that every Children’s Social Worker in Yorkshire and the Humber region wholeheartedly believes. It’s what unites us and it’s why as the UK’s biggest region outside of London, we’ve come together in a unique way.
All of our 15 local authorities are working together as one big team – listening to all of the challenges highlighted in the Professor David Thorpe Safeguarding Research and the areas identified for improvement by our own individual teams.
By sharing knowledge and experience in this collaborative way we can drive our standards of care higher and ensure children throughout Yorkshire and the Humber feel safe.
But none of this is possible without the dedication of highly trained Children’s Social Workers. So we’ve made a Pledge that when you work in Yorkshire and the Humber, we will work harder to support you with the challenges of your role.
We know things aren’t perfect and there’s still more work to be done. But we are committed to staying on this journey to give you the leadership and support you need, quality time with children, manageable caseloads and more efficient ways of working.
