Natalie Trentham, Partnership and Performance Manager (Children's Services), Hampshire CC

YOUR JOB?

I have a jointly funded post, partly set up to project manage Hampshire's partnership bid to pilot a new children's trust. We've been successful and are one of 35 councils running children's trust pilots. Ours is a three-year project for children and adolescents with mental health problems.

YOUR ROLE?

I'm managing the project, forging a partnership between the council, health service and others to create a unified organisation for children's services, and improve co-ordination, planning and joint commissioning of services.

DAY TO DAY?

It's around working with our partners and users of our services, looking at their needs, mapping services and identifying any gaps; developing legal arrangements, budgets and workforce planning.

YOUR CAREER?

I was project manager of a leaving care service with Surrey CC social services/RPS Rainer partnership for eight years and came here as Quality Protects project leader in 1999. I began in social work with children.

PERSONALLY?

I'm married - my husband is director of a children's charity - with a nine-year-old daughter. I play badminton, enjoy travelling and like to learn a new skill a year at evening classes.

THE FUTURE?

I enjoy improving services for children and I like taking on new projects that mean I make a difference.
