Working together to do the best for Warwickshire families

We put children and families at the heart of everything we do and work together to improve their quality of life and ensure they receive early support when they need it.

We know families are the experts in their own lives and it is important we listen to them and understand their needs. We work with them, not to or for them, to keep families together and support them to build on their own strengths and relationships to be the best they can be.

Over the last year, Warwickshire Children and Families Service has secured additional investment from the county council and the Department for Education, as we transform ourselves and our services to ensure we can do this effectively to achieve the best outcomes for children.

We are investing in new ways of working to allow increased focus on building strong relationships with families and helping them to find long-lasting solutions to any problems they may face. Our practice helps people to recognise their expertise so they are resilient and equipped to help themselves and be in control.

We are also investing in our single most important asset, our staff.  Our teams make an impact throughout the county and everyone has a role to play. Children’s social work is a rewarding and challenging career and this drives our people to succeed and achieve for today’s children and future generations.
