Social workers in Peterborough benefit from a clear leadership structure, and while there is a hierarchy in place, we have an open, informal culture.

The People and Communities Directorate’s leadership team are all qualified social workers, backed by a committed Chief Executive and Lead Member. We are redesigning our services to meet the needs of Peterborough’s population rather than sticking to a traditional approach, which gives us an agile mind set and a dynamic and positive atmosphere.

It’s also unusual for People and Communities to sit in the same area within a local authority, and we find that having the various teams working more closely means things can be done faster and more smoothly.

“A new senior management team has identified what needs to be done and begun to put in place measures to accelerate progress. All middle and senior manager posts have now been filled on a permanent basis, which is a significant step forward. The new leadership team is moving the service in a positive direction and there are clear signs of improvement. “ – Ofsted report, 2015
