“We have made significant strides, however we have had a very challenging year and there is still much to do. I believe that the time is right to bring in a new Chair to take the board forward.”
Gladys Rhodes-White, Interim Executive Director of Children’s Services at Rochdale Borough Council said:

"I would like to put on record my thanks for her dedication in a particularly challenging environment and wish her well for the future."
