New interim Director of Children and Families

Saleem Tariq OBE has been appointed as interim Director of
Children and Families for Leeds City Council from 1 February 2020, following an
internal recruitment process and members’ committee.  Sal has been an
integral part of the Leeds journey to ‘Outstanding’ since 2009 and is extremely
well placed to continue to take forward the city’s child friendly ambition and
approach of working restoratively with children and families.  Steve
Walker has now moved into a new role leading the Leeds contribution to the
national ‘Strengthening Families, Protecting Children’ project as Project

Both of these appointments mark an important stage for Leeds as we
build on our ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted inspection and embark on work to support
other councils to improve their social care services for children and families.
