CHILDREN’S SERVICES : ISLINGTON, LONDON

Client : London Borough of Islington

 

The aim of the project was to deliver a
‘flagship’ building
to house the
‘Children Looked After Service’
for the London Borough of Islington. The new building houses many different service areas, the majority of which are front-facing, delivering services directly to one or more of the following client groups: children and young people in need of protection; children and young people in care; parents or other relatives; kinship or foster carers; adopters and Islington residents interested in becoming foster carers or adoptive parents.

Professionals from
a range of agencies
including health, education, the police, children’s centres, etc. also frequently use the building. The existing teams were previously sited disparately across the borough, but have been
brought together
onto one site in this modern and welcoming facility that houses approximately 180 staff.
