All elected Councillors are responsible for the welfare of children and young people in care i.e. "corporate parenting". The Corporate Parenting Board meets on a regular basis to consider matters which affect children and young people in care. This includes satisfying themselves that arrangements for the investigation of concerns about safety and welfare of children and young people in the care of the local authority are satisfactory. Members of the Panel also undertake regular visits to the various care establishments and take the opportunity to speak to staff and residents.
