Service Reviews - Safeguarding, Supporting and Educating Young People


Please note this is part of an ongoing dialogue to inform the service review process and is not a consultation.

The Review looked at how we support children and young people in the city, including safeguarding and functions to support positive outcomes for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.

This includes

  • Social work
  • Adoption and fostering
  • Care leavers
  • Residential children’s homes
  • The youth offending service 
  • Family support.

It also revisited education services which was reviewed earlier in the year and includes

  • Early years
  • School admissions
  • Education and school support and services.

A summary of comments received on Safeguarding, Supporting and Educating Young People is on page 6 of the Summary of Dialogue attached below, with more detail on page 42.

These were fed into a White Paper ‘Planning Birmingham’s Future and Budget Consultation 2014-15’ and the budget setting process for 2014/15.

The White Paper outlined plans for the future of the city council, showing how we can continue to work towards our objectives with far less money.
