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.
