The workforce group is led by Merlin Joseph (DCS Lambeth) and comprises of 8 London boroughs who have chosen workforce as their priority theme. The initial focus for this group is the social work workforce and in particular the identification and sharing of best practice in relation to recruitment and retention.

Opportunities will be identified across ALDCS’s work to join up initiatives on the social work workforce with those aimed at supporting the rest of the children’s workforce. The 8 authorities who have self-evaluated on the workforce theme have embarked on peer challenge work, which continues to inform their work programme and contribute to LIIA pan-London learning.
