Welcome Message – Catherine Underwood
Hello, my name is Catherine Underwood, Corporate Director for People.
I would like to say that we are very proud of our Nottingham, its vibrancy and its many opportunities. Sadly, too many children, young people and their families living in our city face huge challenges and miss out on those opportunities and life chances.
Nottingham City Council believes in keeping children and families at the heart of our practice. Our Council Plan puts children and families at the very core of its activity and, to re-enforce our commitment, we are applying to become a UNICEF Child Friendly City.
We know that we can only achieve this by continuing to build a strong, resilient and skilled workforce, who are able to focus on making things better for children at every opportunity they have, making every contact with them count.
