Working #TogetherforLondonsChildren

The key to LIIA’s success is its people, who share a collective, passionate belief in the importance of collaboratively driving forward necessary (and often difficult) change to make life better for children and young people in London.

Our team’s values, energy, creativity, vision, innovation and drive as individuals filter into everything they do, which when blended together as a team is proving to be a motivating and powerful force for good, inspiring everyone who is travelling on LIIA’s journey with us. LIIA is an example of strong, principled values and best practice action; we are a small team creating the big changes children and young people deserve.

London boroughs children’s services have a proud record of improving the lives of London’s children and a wealth of experience of working with children from all of London’s diverse communities.

There is a collective recognition across London boroughs that improved outcomes, a better experience for children and sustainable services in the future can only be achieved through the systematic collaboration that LIIA embodies, with our unwavering focus on London-wide solutions that positively impact children’s services and the lives of children and young people.
