Thank you for your interest in social work in Brent, where children are at the heart of everything we do. We listen and proactively respond to children’s voices and experiences and this is the core of our approach. We have worked with practitioners to develop our Practice Framework with room for your practice to grow using systemic approaches.  This includes common language based on Signs of Safety which is threaded throughout all of our interventions. Everyone in the organisation is determined to improve outcomes for children and constantly reflect on the differences we are making in children’s lives. We empower our practitioners to lead and share good practice and see practice leadership at every level across all of our services. 

Nigel Chapman, OD Integration and Improved Outcomes, Children and Young People
