Peer support programme for children’s services
Commenting in The MJ on the benefits of a peer support programme for the sector Alison Michalska, ADCS President, said:
“Much wisdom and willingness lies within the sector and so it follows that the sector itself is best placed to share good practice, innovation and drive improvement in services for children and families. Professionals and politicians must work closely together to ensure that we can create a sustainable, self-improving system for children’s services so that services continue to effectively meet the needs of local residents, especially in such challenging times, when resources are reduced but demand most definitely is not. We must also collectively bust the myth that you have to be good or better to have something to offer to others – this is not true. All local authorities, irrespective of their Ofsted judgement, have something to contribute towards a self-improving system and, equally, we all have something to learn.”
