The Worcestershire Children First Business Plan for 2020/21 was approved at today’s (26 March) Worcestershire County Council Cabinet meeting.
The Business Plan builds upon the vision, ambition and priorities set out in the company’s Interim Business Plan following its launch on 1 October 2019.
It covers such areas as:
- Organisational structure, governance and strategic goals
- Service business planning
- The company’s priorities going forward
Rob Morrison, Chairman of Worcestershire Children First, said: “Last year saw significant achievements for children’s services. Services for children continued to improve and this was recognised by Ofsted in their inspection report published in July.
A new and constructive commissioning relationship has been established between the Council and Company as a strong foundation to support the delivery of continued improvement across the range of services.
“This plan sets out our priorities to ensure Worcestershire’s children and young people are happy, healthy and safe and that we build our reputation as a trusted provider and strategic partner across the county and region.”
Worcestershire Children First is the company responsible for delivering children’s services across the county of Worcestershire. These services include children’s social care, education, early help and fostering.
The company is 100% owned by Worcestershire County Council and delivers its children’s services on behalf of the local authority working with partners across the county to ensure children, young people and families receive the best possible service.
