Our Workforce

A Better Start Southend represents a once-in-a-lifetime chance to transform services for babies and young children.

We know that no-one cares more about the services which are offered to young children and their families than the people who work in them. And no-one knows more about how those services could be made even better. That’s why we want to hear from everyone who works with young children – professional staff and volunteers – so we can do things differently, together.

Our success relies on our ability to link different parts of existing systems together, form new relationships and bring parents and carers into each part of the process. A Better Start is a chance to develop how we work and use the skills and talents which already exist in Southend.

We’ll also maintain a focus on fostering innovation, and sharing the very best new thinking and research so that we can help you develop your professional skills and practice.

It’s an exciting time to be working in Southend. We’re looking forward to sharing it with you.
