Who We Are

Hi, we're Wokingham

We are a small but highly ambitious authority.

Put simply, we’re a children’s service that is committed to turning social work on its head. As we actively reshape social work practice we are purely focused on providing the best possible care to the children of Wokingham.

By freeing ourselves from conventions, we have placed ourselves in a much better position to impact lives for the better. We are moulded by our people as each member of the team has a voice and a platform to be heard.

Take a closer look at our children’s service and you will find high performing teams where a stable environment provides space to think and drive our service forward. You will also find an authority that’s leading the way and turning social work on its head by delivering our Practice Framework including the Signs of Safety Initative’

Signs of Safety is a strength based and safety-focused approach which allows Social Workers to build collaborative relationships with the child and family. This allows them to better address serious concerns and creates a clear format for risk assessment.
