Congratulations to Jane McSherry, DCS Merton, who has been elected as the new chair of ALDCS. We look forward to working together for London’s children!
This also means it is time to say thank you and farewell to the outgoing ALDCS chair, Martin Pratt. LIIA was established whilst Martin was chair, and he has been a ceaseless advocate for LIIA and the work to promote collaboration across London’s children’s services. We hope that the strengthened collaborative culture and the prospect for impact at scale for London’s children will serve as a fitting legacy for Martin’s time as ALDCS chair. We wish him well for what will likely be a busy retirement.
