I moved on to the Children's Services Transformational Event at the Lorimer Suite at Elland Road...

It was great to hear from some of our young people about the things they want from us; to be listened to, to be respected, to be understood and to be helped and supported and to hear about the things that are important to them; their family, their friends, their school and their community. It was also encouraging to fell the energy and enthusiasm for change from colleagues across children's services who powerfully articulated what they want as we move towards a new children's services world; intelligent, focused and passionate leadership and direction, focused team work around the child and the family, focused and consistent teamwork around the school and locality and above all action to continue to build on the brilliant work we have been doing together to ensure that every child and young person is happy, healthy, safe and increasingly successful... whatever it takes.
