Children and Young People’s Plan 2019 – 23

For many years now partner organisations in Merton’s Children’s Trust have planned together, set joint priorities and agreed actions which have improved life chances for Merton’s children and young people. This plan sets out the work that we will continue to undertake to further develop our partnership practice across agencies, to increase integration of services where it makes sense to do so, and to strengthen joint accountability for improving outcomes for local young people.

Corporate Parenting Strategy 2019-2022

The Corporate Parenting Strategy has been developed to ensure that the Corporate Parenting Principles outlined in the Children and Social Work Act 2018 are embedded in our practice. The strategy aims to ensure our children achieve the best outcomes and outlines what we expect of ourselves as corporate parents and what children and young people in our care and those with care experience can expect from us.
