(1) Noted the Corporate Parenting principles and considered how each Portfolio can contribute in order to promote the welfare and outcomes of our looked after children and care leavers.
(2) Agreed the content of the care leaver offer and consider if further improvements can be made in order to optimise opportunities and support for our looked after children and care leavers.
(3) Agreed that as Corporate Parents, it is appropriate that the Council contributes to the Care Leaver offer across its portfolios; and to agree, in particular, that the cost of the birthday/festivities allowance (c £15,000 per year) is met by a proportionate contribution from each Portfolio to be determined by the Section 151 Officer in consultation with the Leader of the Council.
