IEWM works closely with the West Midlands Association of Directors of Children’s Services (WM ADCS) which represents all 14 authorities in the West Midlands with a responsibility for Children’s Services. The Association is currently chaired by Karen Bradshaw, Director of Children’s Services at Shropshire County Council.
A regional Improvement Plan is in place, which covers a Sector Led Improvement Programme as well as a number of projects. The programme is also supported by a number of thematic networks, which promote good practice and contribute to the delivery of the regional work plan.
