RESOLVED – That Executive:
(1) approve and adopt the proposals set out at paragraph 1.6 to the report and that further consideration be given to how the Council might work with others across the County to support children in care and care leavers.
(2) approve the District Council’s support and commitment to the development of a county wide ‘care leaver covenant’ as set out in paragraph 1.7 of the report.
To provide the right support, through raising awareness and promoting opportunities, to ensure that children in care and care leavers were capable of achieving their ambitions, aspirations and life goals.
The publication of a local offer was a requirement for the local authority so there was no alternative but to approve an offer. The option to produce an offer just for this Council was rejected as it was considered that a joint offer would provide greater consistence, clarity and equity.
