As a new organisation, Bradford Children and Families Trust is establishing our own purpose, vision, and outcomes for what we aim to achieve.

Their vision: For all children and young people in Bradford to be safe and able to realise their full potential.

Their purpose: To provide high-quality services with partners that help safeguard, support and promote the welfare of children, young people and families across the Bradford District.

They will achieve this through continuous improvements in our services and positive collaboration with their staff, their partner organisations, putting children, young people and their families at the heart of all that they do.
