Children and Young People Thematic Group

The West Lancashire Children's Local Trust Partnership is one of twelve such groups which cover the district authorities of Lancashire County Council.


It has adopted the vision of the County Strategic Trust Partnership as follows:


"Together, we will provide excellent services where people live and which are tailored to local priorities.  We will stand up for Lancashire's children, young people and their families, listening to what they say is important, and take appropriate action.  We will let everyone know what we are doing to improve the outcomes for our children and young people."


To this end the Local Trust Partnership will:

  • seek, listen to and act upon the views of children, young people, their families and carers
  • develop the Lancashire strategic vision for ensuring positive outcomes and the safeguarding of all children and young people in West Lancashire
  • lead integrated working across all sectors that work with children, young people and families in West Lancashire
  • establish a cycle of assessment, monitoring and evaluation for the partnership's agenda
  • promote, develop and implement integrated processes, such as the Common Assessment Framework
  • lead on and develop the implementation of the central government's agenda for children and young people on behalf of the Lancashire Children and Young People's Board, as it applies to West Lancashire


This Local Trust Partnership will report activities and submit minutes to the Local Strategic Partnership. It will contribute to the performance management and evaluation function of the County Strategic Partnership.
