About CLA


Peter Buturo is a dynamic personality and highly-sought-after resource in social work, looking to motivate and engage people and see them perform at their highest potential. 

Peter Buturo energises people to meet the challenges of the world around them. He skilfully weaves his compelling life story into the fabric of our daily lives.

He has a great smile and a way with words that motivates people to take action like never before. When people face roadblocks or adversity, it is the depth of his knowledge on achievement that creates lasting results.

At age 16, the death of his mother, uncle, and grandparents, and being involved in street gangs resulted in a crisis point in his life with seemingly no way out. Teachers did not recognise the true potential of little Peter Buturo. However, he used determination, persistence and belief in his ability to graduate as a Qualified Social Worker in 2011 at Birmingham City University. 

Subsequently, Peter Buturo has worked in several teams which include Looked After Children, Leaving Care, Youth Offending, Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Child (UASC) and Court. Additionally, he has also worked as a residential support worker for a number of care providers throughout England and Wales.

Peter Buturo has gained experience of setting up successful semi independent companies which provide leaving care services since 2017.

Notably, as a Social Worker, Peter Buturo has placed many young people from care into semi-independent placements. The overall experience with some of these providers left him with the view that more could be done to provide a holistic and consistent setting for personal growth and development. Hence the creation of CLA Placements.

Equally, Peter Buturo understands the importance of good practice, service standards and expectations. Thus, he strongly believes that with his wealth of experience the outcomes set for young people will be delivered and achieved throughout CLA Placements.
