Children's Trust

Suffolk Children's Trust brings together all organisations that provide services or support to children and young people in Suffolk. Through identifying where we can work more effectively together than alone, we aim to improve what we do and make Suffolk an even better place for children and young people to grow up.

Suffolk’s strategic vision for children and young people, as set out in the Children & Young People's Plan 2012 is to enable all children and young people in Suffolk to aspire to, and achieve their full potential, giving them the basis for a successful life as active members of their community.

Children’s Trust Joint Commissioning Group

A Joint Commissioning Group has been established on behalf of the Children’s Trust to agree joint strategic commissioning intentions to fulfil the requirements of Suffolk's Health & Wellbeing Strategy.   This Group will also be responsible for the Action Plan against Outcome One: “Giving every child in Suffolk the best start in life”, and for agreeing a Children & Young People's Plan.  It reports to the Health & Wellbeing Board.

Children’s Trust Network

To ensure influence of the children’s agenda amongst wider stakeholders who have an interest in children’s issues a Children’s Trust Network will meet up to 3 times per year around areas of importance to the children’s system.  This will be open to the former Board membership and other stakeholders wishing to attend. The Children's Trust Strategic Board is no longer operational.  For details of former meeting papers please see archived papers.

Suffolk Health & Wellbeing Strategy

The Suffolk Health and Wellbeing Board was established in accordance with the Health and Social Care Act 2012. The Board has a duty to "encourage integrated working" between health, care, police and other public services in order to improve wellbeing outcomes for Suffolk. It is responsible for delivery of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment and for the preparation of the county's Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
