Taking Care Referrals

Local authority social workers identify children and families who could benefit from Taking Care. We are currently working with 6 local authorities in England.

If you are a local authority and you’re interested in finding out more about the Taking Care model, contact NSPCC development manager Mandy Wilkins on 020 7825 1370 or mandy.wilkins@nspcc.org.uk
