Improving Children’s lives in Aberdeen

I’m delighted to be attending the City’s third annual Integrated Children’s Services Conference today.

Taking as its theme working together to improve children’s lives in Aberdeen, the event brings together colleagues and partners working in children’s services for a variety of workshops and keynote speeches. The conference follows on from the very positive report by the Care Inspectorate following their Joint Inspection of Services for Children and Young People in Aberdeen, which recognised the hard work and dedication of individuals and teams.

The conference will offer an opportunity to reflect on work well done and reaffirm the importance of the work still top be done in order to continue to impact positively on the lives of the children, the young people and the families the City’s children’s services support.
