Statement from the Association of London Directors of Children's Services


Words are inadequate to express the sense of loss that London Children’s Services and the DCS community feel at the very sad news of Dave Hill’s untimely passing.

Dave spent much of his career in London including spells in Tower Hamlets, and as DCS at Merton and Croydon. His kindness, compassion and deep commitment to improving outcomes for children are examples to us all.

There will be a time to pay proper tribute to Dave but for now our thoughts are with Jo, Laurel and Lydia at this very sad time.
