The Partnership Vision
Children and young people in Leicestershire are safe and living in families where they can achieve their full potential.
A partnership approach where the child and family is at the forefront of all thinking and action, duplication is removed and seamless service delivery is achieved as our ultimate goal.
If we all work together on shared priorities we believe that we can make the difference that is needed.”Person:Ivan Ould, Children and Families Partnership chair
