In May 2016 Birmingham City Council announced its intention to move towards a Children’s Trust and at a later meeting secured council approval of Trust principles.
In April 2018 it became operationally independent of the council as part of the ongoing process of improvement. The Trust is a wholly-owned company of the council, and works in close partnership to continue to improve outcomes for disadvantaged children and young people in the city.
The Trust has been created with a single focus on making a positive difference for children and young people in the city.
It’s structured to support this single aim, and to work closely with the council and wider partners, whilst remaining operationally independent to enable flexibility, innovation, support and challenge.
