The First Week as a Portfolio Holder
The first week as Portfolio Holder has passed at a blistering pace. I am still chuffed to bits on having the Children and Young People portfolio, and I am looking forward to meeting everyone who contributes to this directorate. I am not one who just sits at County Hall, and will be looking forward to actually meeting the people who are in the field making sure our young people get the right service.
I have also been made very welcome in the role and everyone has been extremely helpful in bring me up to speed on current situations. More in-depth briefings will be happening in the next few weeks, so there will be a lot to take on.
It has been a good start.
