Children's Trust Arrangements
The Children's Trust Arrangements for Birmingham are determined by the Children and Young People's Partnership.
This Partnership is composed of the Children and Young People's Executive Board, whose membership is drawn from partners with a duty to cooperate under the Children Act 2004, alongside a wider partnership Summit that engages all children and young people's partners in strategic planning, service developments and consideration of emerging issues around children and young people.
The Children's Trust Arrangements is the formal partnership between those organisations that have a duty to co-operate under the 2004 Children Act to plan and to deliver joined-up and complete services that ensure the wellbeing of Birmingham's children and young people.
