Corporate Parenting Board

Walsall Council’s Corporate Parenting Board is actively working to review and reset the support available for looked after children, helping them to reach their potential.

We have a responsibility towards children cared for and young people leaving care from age 0 to 25 years to make sure that they:

  • are safeguarded from harm
  • have a safe place to live
  • enjoy education, training and employment with high aspirations for their futures
  • are healthy and are cared for in ways in which any good parent would for their own child

The Board, meets six times a year. It includes the Chairs of both the Education and Children’s Services Overview and Scrutiny Committee, five other council members, and is supported by the Director of Children’s Social Care.
