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 childrens 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.
Your (70) responses were gratefully received and will form part of the decision making process.
Views from the budget consultation and the service review dialogues were made available to the council decision makers to ensure they were fully informed of any relevant concerns prior to the drafting of the business plan and budget. A summary of the feedback from consultation can be found in the consultation chapter of the Council Business Plan on the council’s website.

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.
