This website is currently under review and information may not be accurate. We are refreshing the overarching partnership priorities for children and young people in Lancashire and expect these to be published, supported by new governance arrangements, in autumn 2018.

Children's Partnership Boards

Children's Partnership Boards (CPBs) were established in October 2014, replacing District CYP Trust Boards and Locality Safeguarding Children Groups. The purpose of the CPBs is to drive and deliver effective multi agency working that safeguards and promotes the well-being of children and young people and improves outcomes for families.

The Boards provide a means by which local agencies come together to ensure effective collaboration in the development and delivery of services to children and their families. As a sub-group of the county-wide Children and Young People's Trust, the Boards offer a means by which local priorities can be influenced by local people.

The Children's Partnership Boards have been established across the five areas detailed below:

  • Burnley and Pendle;
  • Chorley, South Ribble and West Lancashire;
  • Fylde, Lancaster and Wyre;
  • Hyndburn, Ribble Valley and Rossendale;
  • Preston.

Membership is made up of multi-agency officers who hold a senior leadership role within their organisation that ensure they can either make resourcing decisions or can provide a perspective of the sector they represent.  A list of organisations represented can be found in the terms of reference, and full membership lists for each Board can be downloaded to the right.

Meeting Frequency

The terms of reference advise that Children's Partnership Boards meet on a quarterly basis, however more frequent meetings can be held if the Boards feel it necessary. All meeting dates can be downloaded to the right.
