About The Trust
The Trust Structure
How the trust is organised
Medway’s Children’s Trust is a local partnership that brings together the organisations responsible for services for children, young people and families in a shared commitment to improving children’s lives. It is the local authority – through the Council’s Director and Lead Member for children’s services – which leads the Children’s Trust Board, but they work closely with other local agencies: the strategic health authority; NHS Medway (the Primary Care Trust); Kent Police; the police authority; the local probation board; the youth offending team and Medway Youth Trust (Connexions). In addition Medway’s Children’s Trust includes other important partners like schools, colleges, third sector organisations, Jobcentre Plus, and representatives of parents and of young people.
The Children’s Trust Board oversees the delivery of all of the actions and promises in the Children and Young People’s Plan, and the development of future priorities and plans.
