Members' Corporate Parenting Group

Description

The purpose of the group is to oversee the extent to which the different groups and services that exist across Barking and Dagenham for children in care are tailored toward and committed to meeting their Corporate Parenting responsibilities. The group recognises that the lack of opportunities for children and young people in care can have serious and long term effects, which will continue to impact throughout their lives and into adulthood. The MCPG is central to the council’s recognition that supporting children and young people in care is a corporate responsibility that can only be achieved through multi-agency partnership working across a wide range of agencies at both universal and targeted levels.
