Children in Care Service

The multi-agency Children in Care Service employs a range of professionals who work to improve the outcomes of children and young people in the care of Trafford Council.
 
We have a range of statutory responsibilities regarding Children in care up to the age of 18 years old. We work in partnership with children and their families, as appropriate, in delivering services. We also have a statutory duty to support care leavers up to the age of 21 and up to 24 if they are in full time education and to provide post adoption services to children and adults affected by adoption.
 
Interdependencies include other teams within the wider CYPS who have responsibilities towards looked after children. The service is accountable to senior managers and elected members and services are inspected on a regular basis by Ofsted. When it is necessary, we purchase additional foster and residential placements from the private sector and agencies.
 
The Children in Care Service comprises a number of discrete teams who provide support to children in care, children placed for adoption, young people who have left care, and to adults affected by Adoption. These include:
