WELCOME TO #TEAM WEST MIDLANDS
WEST MIDLANDS CHILDREN'S SERVICES
A message from our Chair Helen Riley
I’m really honoured to be taking over as chair of the West Midlands DCS network and look forward to building on the solid foundations we have already laid.
I feel that we work together really well as a group, and while I may be taking over as chair, I very much view this role as one of collaboration and teamwork. We’ve all put in a lot of time and effort to identify our plans and priorities, now we need to focus on delivering them.
West Midlands Children's Services includes the West Midlands DCS Network. West Midlands DCS Network is on a self-determined journey to be the best region for Children Services in the country.
The three pillars for change that we are using to underpin the journey to achieving our ambition are:
1. Improve the Quality of Practice
2. Workforce and Leadership
(A Phased Approach)
3. Educational Outcomes, Skills and Economy
