Slough Children First was established in April 2021 as a company wholly-owned by Slough Borough Council to manage children’s social care on behalf of the local authority.
We believe that every child deserves to be safe, secure and successful and making this a reality is our vision. Slough Children First is on a journey to transform services to children, young people and families and improve outcomes, while offering value for money.
When its predecessor company (Slough Children’s Services Trust) was set up, we took an early decision to fundamentally transform how services are delivered, with the focus on securing long-term sustainable change. Moving away from traditional social work teams, we introduced a new model with smaller teams, made up of professionals from different disciplines.
These teams are underpinned by the systemic ‘whole approach’ social work model, which recognises the importance of the relationships that surround a child, while ensuring their voice remains at the centre of everything we do.
Working closely with Slough Borough Council, and other key partners, including police, schools, GPs and the wider community, is central to our work and essential in making the children of Slough safe, secure and successful.
