Children in care

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.To underpin the delivery and development of services we have developed a mission statement, vision and principles for children in care.
