What is the Birmingham Children’s Partnership?
The Birmingham Children’s Partnership has brought together the Local Authority, the NHS, the Police, the Voluntary Sector, the Children’s Trust and children and young people themselves in order to work together to improve the lives of children and families in Birmingham.
41% of children in Birmingham grow up in poverty. Collaborating with our collective resources, expertise and experience we are determined to change this, creating brighter futures and opportunity for all within a safe and healthy city.
Working with teams in ten localities who know their community, focusing on Early Help, improving access to support for Mental health and Autism we are influencing a culture and system change that will help to allow every child to flourish in a child friendly city.
