About Us

The West London Zone partnership is supported by a small staff team working with partners to plan the work, manage data and develop funding opportunities. They are accountable to a Board of Trustees and a ‘Reference Board’ comprising local residents.

Link Workers

Link Workers are based in the anchors – the school, nursery or children’s centre. They work closely with the staff at the anchors, but they don’t work for them  – or for the council. They are independent and their only job is to help young people and their families get the best opportunities and support they can.
