Action Point: Julie Conner is to investigate the appropriateness of JC Police Authority inclusion on the Trust Board. The next set of Children’s Services, Everyone’s Business briefings have been organised for July. All partners were asked to encourage staff to attend. Dates are July 2nd City Learning Centre at 9am, 11am and 1.30pm July 3rd Lawrence Jackson School at 3.30pm July 4th 9am at Skelton Youth Centre July 4th 4pm at Freeborough Specialist Engineering College July 6th 9am at Compass Centre, Redcar Community College Due to the diversion of Big Lottery Funding to the 2012 Olympics, some local 3rd sector support may be lost. A fund allocated to young people will now not start until December Current commitments will be honoured until 2009. It was noted that the recent Youth Voice Event organised to help consult Children and Young People for the CYPP refresh was successful and a positive day for children and young people in the borough. Jim Wingham suggested that similar events should be held more than once a year. Some funding from the Community Partnership might be available to help. Likewise, the BME fashion show was also noted as a recent success for children and young people in the borough. The event will be held again this December. Due to the dates of future meetings clashing with the Redcar and Cleveland Joint Commissioning Group, Brian Thomas, from the Probation Service is unable to attend. As dates for the next two Board meetings have already been set, it was suggested that these could not now be rearranged, however this should be taken into account when setting dates for 2008. 13. DATE AND TIME OF THE NEXT MEETING 13th September, 2.00pm at The City Learning Centre, Eston.
