Although the service is a statutory one that every local authority has to provide, North East Lincolnshire has out-sourced their service to Barnardo’s.
This means that we are truly independent of the local authority and all staff are employed by Barnardo’s.
As a Barnardo’s service, we are part of one of the UK’s leading charities. We believe in the potential of every child and young person, no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through. For more information about Barnardo’s go to the Barnardos website.
The service is also an active member of the National IASS Network (IASSN) and this enables us to call upon the resources and expertise of a wide range of experience and knowledge from across the country, as well as accessing national training.
