The term ‘corporate parent’ is generally used to describe the relationship between a local authority and a child who is ‘looked after’ or was looked after by them (care leavers) and in respect whom the local authority has ongoing duties and powers under 23A and 24D of the Children Act 1989.
As corporate parents in Rutland County Council it is our responsibility to ensure that children looked after and care leavers get the best experiences in life, from excellent parenting which promotes good health and educational attainment to a wide range of opportunities to develop their talents and skills in order to have an enjoyable childhood and successful adult life.
The overall aim of the Board is to ensure the corporate responsibility of the whole council and partner agencies to children looked after, through the corporate parenting arrangements and governance.
