Children's Safeguarding and Social Care

At the Royal Borough of Greenwich we believe children should enjoy their childhoods, and we are determined to apply child-centred best practice in everything that we do. 

Our Children and Young People's Plan

Greenwich Children's Services rated Good - OFSTED August 2016


Our Practice Manager Offer

In Royal Greenwich, Social Work practice is based on an empowering and coaching model.  The coaching method is used throughout all levels of the service and empowers frontline practitioners who then use similar approaches to empower the children and families they work with.  We believe this is effective in improving outcome for children, young people and families. We aim to develop outstanding leaders who can energise teams to improve the impact they make, give them stability, clear direction and opportunities to reflect on practice and develop their own leadership skills.
