Committee details

Corporate Parenting Board

Purpose of committee

Collectively, councillors act as the ‘corporate parents’ for children in the City Council’s care. The Corporate Parenting Board meets to review this care provision, to ensure that the Council enables these children to:


·  have safe and stable care;

·  be well looked after;

·  be prepared for adult life; and

·  grow into emotionally balanced and resilient young people.


The Board is made up of 10 councillors (including the Portfolio Holder for Early Intervention and Early Years) and reflects the political balance of the Council. It usually meets 6 times each year and its meetings are open to the public.
