Children and Young People’s Task Group

As from today I have taken over as the Chairman of The Children and Young People’s Task Group, I would like to thank Sophie who has stood down after chairing the group for the past five years.

The Broxtowe Borough Partnership would like to see local children and young people be aspirational, achieve their potential and be respected for participating in their community. The Children and Young People’s Task Group brings together statutory and community organisations that work with or provide services for children, young people and families.

Broxtowe Borough Partnership is the Local Strategic Partnership (LSP) for the borough of Broxtowe.

The Partnership is built in the spirit of co-operation, with members who are committed to working together towards the same objectives.  This means that it is an organisation that brings together people from the public, private, voluntary and community sectors so that they can work together to improve the quality of life for all who live, work and play in Broxtowe.

By working together, the Partnership members believe:

  • We can improve the quality of life for everybody in Broxtowe
  • We can reduce the inequalities that exist locally and create a more inclusive borough
  • Services can work better and more efficiently and be delivered in ways which better meet local demand
