Lancashire is a place we’re very proud of and we’re proud of the role the county council plays in it too. As the fourth largest local authority in the country and the largest in the North, we serve 1.2 million residents and deliver a wide range of innovative, successful services that really make a difference to people's lives.
Our strengths based approach
Our Children's Services is an innovative, caring and welcoming place to work full of people committed and passionate about making a positive difference to children and young people's lives. Our service is going through a wonderful transformation embracing strengths-based approaches as we embed the Family Safeguarding model of practice. However, this is just one of a range of innovations and developments as we continue to make our Children's Services one of the most progressive places to work.
We have successfully secured a range of national funding opportunities to help us to continue to: reduce caseloads, offer the best training, increase the range of services we offer, and increase the coordination of support we deliver. This is a fantastic time to come and work for us as a variety of positive changes to our service come into effect.
