1. PUTTING OUR CHILDREN AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING
Putting children first starts with positioning children’s social work at the very top of our agenda. From better information sharing to better interventions – we’re working together to make sure that everything happens at the right time and the right level. Safeguarding what will soon be London’s largest child population is no easy task. But as you’ll discover, it’s closest to our heart.

2. BECOMING STRONGER BY BUILDING A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING
Becoming a more robust family service is about listening to the children we serve. It’s about creating somewhere they can find their voice and truly express themselves. And it begins with great social work, delivered by the people who strive for a greater understanding and never give up on what’s right for a child. We’re rising to meet the challenge of serving London’s largest child population by 2020. All we need now are the strongest practitioners to be part of our incredible journey.

3. A CULTURE THAT CHANGES THINGS FOR THE CHILD
Change for our community starts inside our family service. It starts with our people, and giving them a voice. And it starts with a real role in influencing where we’re headed. We’re the family service that is transforming to serve London’s largest child population. For you, this promises every opportunity to fulfil your potential as you help us fulfil ours.

4. CREATING BETTER FUTURES FOR ALL
How do we build a better place for children to grow? Is it about developing the right processes? Or is it about spending more time with the families we serve? At Barnet, we believe it’s both. We’re driving the quality of our family service with new measures in best practice. And we’re making new promises to the community we serve.
