Providing services

Within the County Council the Children, Families and Adults Services directorate is designed to enable the council to respond to the needs of the people and communities we serve.  The service continues to take the lead with its partners on matters facing children and plays a key role as an advocate for children, young people and families, making sure that:

  • every child or young person receives a high quality education regardless of their age or background
  • there is no longer a link between disadvantage and poorer health or education outcomes, and that all young people are safe and well equipped to go onto further learning or work. 

How we deliver services for children 

Delivering services close to where families live and children go to school and college is one of our key principles. 

  • We have 40 Children’s Centres delivering services for 0-5 year olds.
  • We have 7 district teams made up of staff from a variety of disciplines working closely with partner agencies to provide information, guidance and support. These 7 teams cover: Huntingdonshire, Fenland, East Cambridgeshire, Cambridge City, South Cambridgeshire.
  • We have 44 social work units to improve how we support more vulnerable children and families.
  • For children and young people with a disability or special educational need, we provide services direct to families or through Children’s Centres or through work with partners particularly in health and schools, colleges, and early years settings.
