Important topics to be discussed at the next Children and Young People OSC

The Children and Young People Overview and Scrutiny Committee has a busy meeting ahead on Tuesday 3 June, when members will be focusing on a number of important topics.

New contractors for the delivery of Children’s Centres

The Council’s procurement exercise to award the Children’s Centres contracts ends today (23 May) – information about the successful organisations and their bids will be shared at the meeting.


Proposed changes to the Integrated Disability Service

This issue has been closely monitored by the Committee during the past year. Proposed changes to the service’s Local Offer are to be subject to a public consultation exercise – information about the proposals and the consultation process will be shared at the meeting.

Child Poverty Strategy




A representative of the Child Poverty Action Group will be attending the meeting to share with members the national perspective on the                  Strategy. As this is the first time that the Strategy has been reviewed by the Committee, detailed information on Warwickshire’s approach, including current progress, the delivery plan and key milestones will be shared, which will help members to determine whether more detailed scrutiny of a particular area is required. The Strategy has a key link to the Priority Families Programme, which will also be considered at the meeting.





The Committee is also due to receive a report on a) the delivery of the One Organisational Plan and how the required savings will impact future services for children and young people; b) an introduction to the new Head of Service for Learning and Achievement, with an outline of his short and long-term priorities and plans for the service, and c) an update on what it happening across the county to improve the educational outcomes for young people aged 14-19.
