Central Bedfordshire Children and Young People’s Plan Vision
Changes have been made to our strategic governance arrangements which mean that we are better placed to support partners in responding to current areas of focus and challenges.
As part of the new arrangements, I am delighted to be chairing the Children’s Leadership Board which provides strategic leadership to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people in Central Bedfordshire.
Details of the new governance arrangements can be viewed here.
