Central Bedfordshire Children’s Trust
The Central Bedfordshire Children's Trust is a local partnership that brings together those organisations that work together to improve children's lives and deliver the best possible services for families.
The Trust has the following vision for children and young people in Central Bedfordshire:
"We want every child in Central Bedfordshire to enjoy their childhood and have the best possible start in life. We want every child to do well in education, make friends and build strong relationships with their family. As young adults, we want every young person to have the knowledge, skills and qualifications that will give them the best chance of success, so that they are prepared to take their full place in society as a healthy, happy, contributing and confident citizen."
Partners’ plans for delivering the vision are set out in the Children and Young People's Plan (PDF 176.2KB) .
