FUTURE SOCIAL PROGRAMME BOARD
MEET OUR CHAIR
FutureSocial is a regional innovation programme, working to improve outcomes for children, young people and families across the West Midlands. It is grant funded by the DfE to Spring 2020 and supported financially and in kind by all Local Authorities and Trusts across the region.
The role of FutureSocial is to facilitate and enable regional collaboration and approaches, which will assist and benefit all 14 Local Authorities and Trusts.
An ambition for FutureSocial is to create a stable and highly skilled workforce, by identifying innovative and cost effective approaches to support and develop children’s social work professionals.
This will be achieved through the exploration and implementation of alternative models of delivery, building workforce capacity and quality by the pooling of resources and capacity as necessary, focusing specifically on the areas of recruitment, retention and the development of the children’s workforce.
