Council to improve lives of vulnerable people in Potters Bar
Social workers will spend less time on paperwork under a new plan to improve the lives of vulnerable families in Potters Bar.
Hertfordshire County Council has been awarded £4.86 million to put towards children’s social care – the highest in the country from the government’s children’s social care innovative programme.
The money will fund a new project aiming to keep more of the highest-risk children and families in the county together safely.
It also sets out to improve the children’s health and education, as well as reducing physical and emotional harm in families.
