LAC / LC – West Norfolk and Breckland Teams

Hi, I’m Jo Diggines, Head of Social Work LAC and Leaving Care Team’s in the West and Breckland localities. I qualified as a social worker 18 years ago having studied at the Anglia Ruskin University. My social work career has centred around children and families, firstly working within Cambridgeshire before joining Norfolk County Council in 2003.

I thoroughly enjoy working, and living in Norfolk and am proud of the path that Norfolk’s Children’s Services has been on. Throughout my career I have moved from social worker to assistant team manager and then been privileged to manage my own team within assessment and safeguarding.

As Head of Social Work for Looked After Children and Leaving Care I am excited by the journey ahead and the new initiatives that Norfolk is embarking on. I am lucky to work with such as dedicated team of people who share the same values and vision.


If you are an experienced social worker and looking to move to Norfolk, you can find out more about what West Norfolk and Breckland has to offer.

We would love to hear from you.
