The Children and Young People Board has responsibility for Local Government Association (LGA) activity on the wellbeing of children and young people, including education, social care and careers.

Board objectives:

  • Articulate and promote a powerful strategic role for local government to achieve better outcomes for children 0 to 19.
  • Secure maximum support and flexibility for local government to deliver the radical change agenda for children and learning.
  • Consolidate the role of local authorities in joining up services (public-private-voluntary) in localities on behalf of children, young people, their families and the local community and promote an integrated local government offer on youth services (in collaboration with the Safer Communities Board).
