Our vision for children and young people

The Children’s Trust Board have set their vision for children and young people in Sutton. They aim is for children to:

  • be happy, safe and healthy within resilient families, and
  • for them to grow up with the skills, knowledge and attributes they will need to be confident, independent and ready for adult life

The Children’s Trust needs all services to work together to provide a seamless offer to families. This will allow a coordinated early help approach, to prevent escalation for families in need.

Following a review in 2014, the Trust Board established five strategic priorities. These focus the services from the Council and our partners:

  • ensure Safeguarding
  • promote the Early Years and Early Development
  • champion healthy lives, healthy minds
  • enable success
  • encourage ambition

The Children’s Plan sets out how the Council and its partners will deliver these priorities. This plan is overseen by Sutton’s Children’s Trust Board.
