In 2019 Northamptonshire
County Council children’s social care services were placed under a
“Direction” by the Department for Education for the Council to work with
the Secretary of State for Education and/or the Children’s Services
Commissioner towards the establishment of a council wholly-owned
Northamptonshire Children’s Trust was
established on the 1st November 2020 to deliver children’s social care
services on behalf of the Council.
We are a company with a strong ambition to improve the
lives of children and their families, with a focus on ensuring a
positive impact on those children most in need of protection and care.
The voice and experience of the child have been an integral element
throughout the creation, set up and delivery of the Trust.
Working with key partners within local communities, we
aspire to deliver outstanding social care services for children and
young people in the county, ensuring families receive early help to
prevent difficulties escalating, and creating the conditions for social
work to flourish.
