We aim to help children and young people in Newcastle to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and achieve economic well-being by supporting them in their families, schools and communities.
These are some of the services provided by, or supported by, the directorate:
We have strong partnerships with schools, health service agencies, the police, Newcastle College, Job Centre Plus and a range of public and voluntary sector partners. See the Newcastle Children's Trust Board.
Many organisations responsible for delivering services to children, young people and families, including several services delivered by the council, are regularly inspected to ensure that they are high quality and effective at keeping children and young people safe and protected from harm.
