Our priorities

Our children services team's policy work is focused on three priorities:

  • Leadership and partnership working which keeps children safe
  • Shaping the development of a support framework for parents and children during the early years
  • Strengthening councils strategic leadership of the London schools system

We work closely with boroughs and a range of partners, including:

We also support the Association of London Directors of Children's Services (ALDCS) and host the London Safeguarding Children Board.
