Our role

Staffordshire County Council is your ‘corporate parent’. This means as you grow towards adulthood we will help you get ready for living on your own and supporting yourself.

We are committed to ensuring looked after children and young people are prepared for independence.


 

Corporate parenting principles

What we’ll do:

  • Prioritise and promote relationships at every interaction
  • Be attachment aware and trauma informed - understanding your lived experience
  • Act in your best interests
  • Promote your physical and mental health and wellbeing; and support you to build your emotional resilience
  •  Encourage you to express your views, wishes and feelings and take them into account
  • We will consider making care leavers a protected characteristic
  • Be inspirational and aspirational in our planning with you
  • Support you to have access to: 
    • loving, stable homes
    • quality education
    • fulfilling work or training opportunities
    • any other services that you need
  • Appropriately prepare you for adulthood and independent living throughout your care journey
  • Embed a culture of reflection and learning
