Overall our aim is to provide secure and happy homes for the children in our care with acknowledgement that the child’s welfare is paramount.

DUKE STREET PARKING - Please be aware that the rules regarding car parking at the front of Duke St have changed. If you park there without a permit you are likely to get a ticket and a £35 fine. It is now managed by Parking Services and not Duke St so if you get a ticket there is little that we can do to appeal it. However, if you need to attend a meeting at Duke St let your Supervising Social Worker know with plenty of advance notice so that they can arrange for you to pick up a permit at reception or be allowed to park at the back of the building

Please note all FCA meetings start at 12.30 not 12 noon - error in the training manual, thanks

The support provided to me by the FCA has been absolutely brilliant. They are always at the end of the phone and very helpful if you ever need any advice.

Confident that no matter what the issue is we can always contact the FCA for support and advice.
