Surrey Corporate Parenting Board

Purpose of committee

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.
