'protecting and promoting the welfare of children and young people in need in Moray in partnership with themselves, their families, communities and others providing services.'

This partnership ethos is apparent in assessing and addressing individual needs and integrating our work with education, health, housing, police, community care, voluntary sector and other parties.
