Corporate parenting approach

Trafford Council believes that the needs of looked after children are best met if all departments within the council work collectively and in a coordinated way to meet the needs of children in care and care leavers. This approach is known as corporate parenting.

In order to ensure that this collective approach is driven forward effectively Trafford Council has a Corporate Parenting Board which is chaired by an elected member and whose membership includes directors from each of the council’s departments.
