What is the
Corporate Parenting Board?
The Corporate Parenting Board (CPB) provides
robust assurance of the whole corporate parenting system, ensuring
Surrey is an outstanding corporate parent to its children; and that
all looked after children and care leavers can achieve their full
potential in life.
Surrey CPB puts looked after children and care
leavers at the heart of everything we do. Members will inquire and
understand, set ambition, champion and challenge our collective
care of looked after children and care leavers. It is strategic,
forward thinking, informed by our experts, practitioners, children
and carers, and has high expectations for the quality and
experience of support and services children and carers receive.
The foundation of our work across our system
is the Corporate Parenting Strategy, Sufficiency Strategy and
Pledge Commitments we make to looked after children and care
leavers about how we will care for and support them.
The CPB holds six themed meetings per year, in
accordance with the Forward Plan. Annual progress and achievements
of the board are reported to full council, along with an update of
the board's many sponsored programmes and projects.
