One Minute Guides

Building a common understanding of different roles, responsibilities and services across the children’s workforce is an important part of helping us work together to achieve the best outcomes for children, young people and families in Leeds.

Children’s Services is a broad, varied and complex area of work and it can be difficult to make sense of the support available and know who does what. We have developed a library of ‘one minute guides’ that aim to provide straight-forward information about the different work we do and who is involved. The guides are for everyone to use and we’re regularly adding to them with new topics and information.

You can find a full list of all the guides in the glossary document:

Or use the search box or alphabetic list below, to search for the guide you want.

We always welcome your thoughts and feedback on the guides. You can contact us about them by email at CSImprovement@leeds​​.
