Here in Trafford our vision is that at all levels our interventions make life better for children and families. We are ambitious for our children and our practitioners and our core value is ‘would this be good enough for my child’.

We believe that having a culture and environment in which our managers and social workers can thrive is an essential element of improving outcomes for children and families.

Cared for Children and Care Experienced Young people – We have brought together our Aftercare service and our Permanence service to create a ‘through care’ approach dedicated to children and young people who have a permanence plan, who then make that transition to being a care experienced young person.
