Northamptonshire’s Pledge to Children in Care and Care Leavers

Northamptonshire’s new Pledge to Children in Care and Care Leavers is now live. The Pledge sets out our commitment to making sure these children and young people receive the same care we would want for our own children at home. The contents of the Pledge reflect our specific priorities and what young people themselves have said is important to them, above and beyond the services we are required to provide by statute. It can be used as a checklist by young people themselves to record where they think we are doing what we should, and where we are falling short. Each promise has an allocated lead officer responsible for making sure it is kept, and all of our team members and partners are expected to make sure their work with children in care and care leavers helps to fulfil the Pledge. The Northamptonshire Corporate Parenting Board will make sure that progress against the Pledge is reported and discussed at every meeting.
