Children and Young People Overview and Scrutiny Committee 27th June 2017

The Children and Young People Overview and Scrutiny Committee will convene at 10.00 on 27th June 2017 in Committee Room 2, Shire Hall, Warwick for its first meeting of the 2017-18 municipal year.

This meeting will be the first one held since the elections to Warwickshire County Council took place on 4th May 2017. The membership of the Committee has changed greatly and for some members, this will be their first experience of being part of such a meeting.

At this important first meeting, the Committee will be considering a report which details the ongoing transformation of the Council’s Children and Families Business Unit and how members will be directly involved in this area of business in the future.

Members will also take some time to consider the work which has been previously undertaken by the Committee, with further discussions at the meeting determining areas/topics for inclusion at future meetings.

If any member(s) of the public wish to speak at this meeting (resident or working in Warwickshire) on any matter within the remit of the Committee, then please contact Ben Patel-Sadler – at least two working days before the meeting takes place.

Similarly if there are any queries with regards to the remit and work of the Committee then please do not hesitate to make contact.
