Bournemouth Children's Trust

Working together to help give all our children and young people the best possible start in life

We want to ensure that all children and young people in Bournemouth: 

  • thrive and reach their full potential
  • contribute positively to the community
  • are healthy, stay safe and have fun
  • are protected from abuse and neglect and feel safe in their families and within the community
  • are confident.

We know that by working together, we can change children and young people's lives for the better more effectively. The Children's Trust brings together a range of partners including: health, police, community and voluntary sector, along with other organisations responsible for services for children, young people and families, to help us do that.

Our Plan for Children,Young People and Families describes how we will make a difference to the children and young people in Bournemouth.
