Hertfordshire County Council

The Corporate Parenting Board keeps track of what's being done in Hertfordshire to improve the lives of children in care.

Our Corporate Parenting Strategy for 2019-22 (PDF 745KB)Opening in a new window sets out the vision and plans for fulfilling the ambitions and corporate parenting responsibilities to all our children and young people in care and care leavers.

We want to achieve 6 outcomes for children in care:

Be happy, be independent, be ambitious, be safe, be healthy and be resilient

Find out more about our 6 outcome bees.

Each outcome is looked at by 2 of our board members. They provide progress reports about:

  • what work is being done
  • what successes there have been
  • what challenges there have been.
