Children & Young People’s Trust
Welcome to the website of Redcar & Cleveland Children & Young People’s Trust. Here, you will find a range of information about the Trust and its role in supporting local organisations to make a difference to the lives of children, young people across the borough.
We hope you enjoy exploring the website. New information will be added in the coming months so be sure to return to the website at a later date. Send any suggestions for new material to our head office.
The website includes information on projects designed to improve the quality of life for local families. It also features a brand new Families’ Guide which lists events, activities, and services for children and young people aged from 0-20.
Reform of Children’s Trust Autumn 2010
The Government have removed the statutory guidance from children’s trusts, although there is still a requirement for a Trust Board. Schools and further education are being removed from the ‘duty to cooperate’, locally we hope that they will still play a lead role in the development of our newly refocused trust. Following consultation with children, young people, parents/ carers and practitioners we have revised our trust priorities down to five. To ensure we can achieve these priorities we have also restructured the trust groups which sit under the Board. The new priority groups, in conjunction with our partner health training provider Discovery Learning, will hold their first meeting during December/ January and are working to develop actions to support the priority objective. Further information on this can be found in the attachment.
In Redcar and Cleveland, the Trust Board have agreed to continue and develop the Trust and to produce a new plan. We will keep you up to date with developments as they progress.
At the February Trust Board meeting revised governance and a Commissioning Framework were agreed. Copies of these documents are attached below.
