Steve Walker, who carried out the role in an interim capacity has now been formally appointed as the Director of Children & Families.
Steve has been an integral part of the children’s services leadership team for the last six years and is fully committed to our aim for Leeds to be a compassionate city with a strong economy. Steve will now continue this work to ensure that we achieve our ambition for Leeds to be a child friendly city, deliver the Children and Young People’s Plan, and achieve the necessary budget savings across the children’s services directorate. I am sure you will join me in wishing Steve every success in his new role. Best wishes, Lisa
