Welcome to Children’s Social Care

At Lincolnshire County Council, we believe that children, young people and families deserve outstanding social care. Our high aspirations mean we’re now at the forefront of innovation and while we’ve made great strides, we want to achieve more - much more. That’s why our approach to practice is built on fresh thinking and creativity.

We’re leading the way in children’s services.

We’re supporting sector-led improvements and we’re part of an exciting project with Eileen Munro, using the Signs of Safety framework across all service areas. It’s also why we’re involved in the Partners in Practice Programme – an exciting partnership as one of the country’s best performing local authorities, redefining what children’s services departments look like, with the only design principle being what works for children.
