What Does the Trust Do?
The key aim of the Children's Trust is to deliver better outcomes for children and young people by getting different organisations to work effectively together.
Bradford Children's Trust directs partnership working by:
- Setting the visions and the strategy
- Listening to and speaking up for children and young people and ensuring their needs are recognised
- Ensuring services are delivered to improve outcomes for children and young people
- Making sure that all the different partners are working to the same ends.
- Producing the Children and Young People's Plan, which sets out what actions partners are going to take together to improve children's lives.
The governance and infrastructure arrangements for the Children's Trust have been agreed by all partners. The arrangements meet the requirements of the Statutory Guidance.
Following a comprehensive analysis of needs, involving consultation with all key partners, Bradford Children's Trust has identified key priorities which they will address collaboratively. These are outlined in the Children and Young People's Plan 2011-14.
14 Local Achievement Partnerships provide the delivery mechanism for positive impacts on outcomes for children and young people, through inter-agency collaboration.
