Summary:The corporate parenting responsibility is shared by the council as a whole, so it is important that all elected members in all councils have access to this handbook - not just those with an interest in children's services. It is essential reading for local councillors in order to help them understand their own contribution as a corporate parent, whatever their role within the council. It clearly sets out the responsibilities of a corporate parent, together with practical exercises and briefings to support effective practice. Its focus is on the leadership and commitment that only members and senior officers can provide.
