CHILDREN'S TRUST BOARD
Purpose of committee
At the Children’s Trust Board meeting on 5 December 2016, the Board considered and supported new, leaner and more responsive partnership strategic leadership arrangements to better support partners in responding to current areas of focus and challenges. As a result, the existing Children’s Trust Board and its sub groups have been replaced with arrangements which include:
Children’s Leadership Board – provides strategic leadership to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people in Central Bedfordshire. Core members include senior leaders from Central Bedfordshire Council, Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Bedfordshire Police and schools. This meeting is not a public one.
The Children’s Leadership Board influences and links to numerous boards such as the Health and Wellbeing Board, Central Bedfordshire Safeguarding Children Board and the Partnership Vision for Education Board.
Stakeholder Forum – enables engagement with a wider range of partners and interested parties on key issues.
‘Youth Central’ - a Children and Young People’s Board which ensures that children and young people can influence strategies and services and provide challenge to partners.
