About Our Client

Bradford is setting up a new Children and Families Trust. The Trust is commissioned by Bradford Council to deliver a wide range of services for children, families and young people on their behalf. The Trust is accountable for determining how outcomes of these services are achieved and for the day-to-day running of commissioned children's services.

This is an important opportunity to renew our approach to delivering the support that Bradford's children, young people and families in need, by renewing services and creating a new organisation. They are bringing the mindset, dynamism and energy of a start-up together with the national expertise and determination of the Trust's Board, senior leadership and our colleagues' practical experiences of providing children's services in Bradford.

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.
