The What Works Centre for Children’s Social Care has announced the names of the six local authorities (Change Project partners) that it will work with on two initial project areas.

Darlington Borough Council, Hillingdon Borough Council and Wigan Council will work on empowering social workers to take decisions – over budgets – to prevent the need for children to enter care; and Lambeth Borough Council, Southampton City Council and Stockport Borough Council will work on projects on locating social workers in schools to work with children and families.
