Children's & Adult Services

The last 12 months has seen Bedford Borough Council undertake a considerable transformation programme within its Directorate for Children’s & Adult Services.

In January 2014 two directorates, Children’s Services, Schools & Families and Adult & Community Services came together under  the leadership of Kevin Crompton, Director of Children’s & Adult Services.

‘Our focus is on developing our early intervention and prevention strategies, and supporting this with an efficient and effective social care system’, says Kevin.  Successful candidates will be able to rely on unswerving support in helping to deliver this transformation programme.  This is a priority for the authority, and this is translating into practical tools through additional investment, so we have both the commitment and the resources to make a real difference.  We have recently introduced a career progression scheme for our social workers, which is a really positive affirmation of our commitment to retaining and developing the talent within our organisation.
