We’ve made great strides over the last 2 – 3 years in Lambeth in improving children’s services and putting our children and families right at the very heart of practice. Following a recent successful Ofsted inspection we now want to build on our achievements and successfully tackle continued challenges. Our Children at the Heart of Practice framework and a highly motivated workforce give us a strong platform for delivering on our high ambitions for children and families in this vibrant and diverse borough.

Working in the context of strong partnerships, this will be a demanding but very rewarding children’s leadership role.
