Thank you for listening to the What Works for Children’s Social Care podcast - COVID-19 special. In this episode we are delighted to be joined by three of the senior leaders from Telford and Wrekin Council - Clive Jones, the out-going Executive Director, Children’s and Family Services; Jo Britton, who is is taking over the role and has been Director of Children’s Safeguarding and Family Support at the Council; and Heather Loveridge, Director of Education and Skills.
In this episode, Clive, Jo and Heather discuss the difficulties involved in working together when we’re physically apart, the importance of regular communication - with the community, workforce, and children and families - and bringing data about vulnerable learners together.
They also discuss how it was vital that, having assessed the needs of each family, they then discussed this with the families to ensure they were happy with the outcome and were getting the support they needed.
