Decision details

Local Offer for Children in Care and Care Leavers

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


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.


Reasons for the decision:

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.


Alternative options considered:

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.
