Children and Young People's Plan 2022 - 25

Report of the Director of Community & Children’s Services


The Board received a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services setting the strategic priorities for the City Corporation to ensure that children and young people who live or study in the Square Mile, or access its services, live the best life that they can.


In response to a query, Members were informed that the City Corporation has safeguarding responsibilities for children in relation to the performance of its functions, and that the local authority in which the children reside is responsible for their social care. The Board requested further clarity about the responsibilities the City Corporation has to its children residents attending schools in other local authorities.


The Board was informed that the City of London’s Children’s Partnership Board was driving the plan and that it meets every three months to deliver a quarterly progress report. It was noted that these reports are available for interested Members or Committees upon request.


Officers explained that they were striving to achieve a balanced approach to consultation and engagement as they have found that currently cohorts feel over consulted.


RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
