Our Vision 

Our new trailblazing social care programme is all about family.

“All I have ever wanted was to go and live back home with my family”

Hertfordshire’s Family Safeguarding model was highlighted in the recent National Care Review.

We are now investing in an extension of this model so we can achieve the best we can for our looked after children.  We want to reunite more children in care with their families, where this would be safe, secure and in their best interests.
