Appendix One: Children & Young People’s Thematic Group (Children’s Trust Board) Structure & Diagram


Roles & Responsibilities

Children and Young People’s Thematic Group (CYPTG) (Children’s Trust Board) is the local strategic partnership comprised
of commissioners and current and potential providers of services (under a statutory and voluntary duty of co-operation) for children,
young people and their families. The Trust is a planning and decision making body that works in partnership with the Council and
other organisational governance structures, e.g. PCT Board. The Trust is responsible for the implementation of children’s trust
arrangements: delivering the outcome led vision for all children and young people via the Children and Young People’s Plan;
ensuring robust inter-agency governance; developing integrated strategy, joint planning and commissioning; and integrated
processes and services delivered to meet the needs of children, young people and their families rather than around professional
and/or institutional boundaries. The aim of the Trust is to improve outcomes for and the wellbeing of children; wellbeing is defined
as the five ECM outcomes.

The CYPTG will make 6 monthly performance reports to the LSP, Performance Cabinet and Children’s Overview and Scrutiny.

The CYPTG is responsible to the Local Strategic Partnership, the LSP providers the forum for setting and reviewing the strategic
vision for Sefton (contained in the Sustainable Community Strategy) and for agreeing the Local Area Agreement.

The CYPTG is chaired by the Lead Member for Children’s Services.

Local Safeguarding Children’s Board contributes to the wider goals of the Children’s Trust to improve the wellbeing of all
children, with particular focus on the staying safe outcome. The Children’s Trust Board should consult the LSCB on issues that
affect how children are safeguarded and the LSCB’s role is to provide challenge to the Children’s Trust Board on their success in
ensuring that children and young people are kept safe. The LSCB works within the framework established by the CYPP in respect
of planning services but also will publish its own annual report.




Children’s Trust, Partnership & Communications, Partnership Agreement Roles & Responsibilities Appendix May 2009.    Page 2 of 40
The LSCB will formally report performance to the Children's Trust Board twice per annum; via an Annual report and additionally
with an interim report. Each will report against priorities identified in the LSCB Business Plan. However, issues and/or risks
regarding performance can be reported and/or raised with the Children's Trust Board at any time.

The LSCB is independent and is not responsible to the local authority or partner structures. The Director and Lead Member for
Children’s Services have lead responsibility for ensuring the local authority fulfils its legal responsibilities for safeguarding and
promoting the welfare of children and young people.

The LSCB is chaired by an independent chair.

Children’s Trust Executive Group ‘executes’ the decisions made by the Children’s Trust Board through a process of delegated
and devolved decision making powers. It has specific responsibilities on behalf of the Children’s Trust Board for ensuring
implementation of the CYPP; integrated processes, practices and service delivery; involvement of children, young people and their
families, development of three area working, and preparation for the Comprehensive Area Assessment.

The CTEG will receive quarterly performance reports from the ECM Subgroups and will report 6 monthly to the Children’s Trust
Board.

The Children’s Trust Executive Group is responsible to the Children’s Trust Board.

The CTEG is chaired by the Children’s Trust Director.

Children’s Trust Commissioning Group works on behalf of the Children’s Trust Executive to maintain and rationalise, where
appropriate, commissioning activity across the Children’s Trust, and undertakes strategic commissioning reviews as a result of
referral from Children’s Trust Executive Group. Activity is carried out within the parameters of the Trust’s Commissioning
Framework.

The CTCG is responsible to the Children’s Trust Executive.

The CTCG is chaired by the Children’s Trust Director.




Children’s Trust, Partnership & Communications, Partnership Agreement Roles & Responsibilities Appendix May 2009.       Page 3 of 40
The five Every Child Matters Subgroups are responsible for ensuring delivery of the outcomes as defined within the CYPP, LAA,
national indicator set and any other locally identified and agreed priorities. Key to the role of the subgroups is the lead responsibility
for ensuring effective performance management across the partnership with each subgroup having allocated responsibility for
CYPP, LAA, national indicator and any other targets as agreed. The subgroups will receive information from a plurality of sources,
including the three area working network and other stakeholders as appropriate.

The subgroups will make quarterly performance reports to the Children’s Trust Executive Group.

The subgroups are responsible to the Children’s Trust Executive (Stay Safe is also dually responsible to the LSCB)
The subgroups will be chaired by the lead manager responsible for overall delivery in that outcome area.


Children’s Trust Support Services Group will identify those processes, which are critical to improving the quality and efficiency of
Children's Services in Sefton and the extent to which partnership working can assist those processes.

The CTSG will be part of the quarterly performance reporting to the Children’s Trust Executive Group.

The CTSG is responsible to the Children’s Trust Executive and other agency governance
structures as appropriate.

The CTSG is chaired by the Director for Business and Support Services.

Locality Management - The role and extent of locality management has yet to be confirmed. A delivery plan for each of the three
areas is currently under development and will work as an addendum to the Children and Young People’s Plan.

Progress on the development and impact of locality working will be reported to the Children’s Trust Executive Group and the Board
as part of the performance reporting cycle.

Key:

                 Linked in to but not accountable to the Children’s Trust Board

Reporting Structure:

The roles, responsibilities, performance reporting and accountabilities of the partnership structure are defined above and provides
the overall governance arrangements under which the Children and Young People’s Thematic Group (Sefton’s Children’s Trust
Board) operates.

However, there is a responsibility on individual members off all the component parts of the partnership structure to ensure the
effective and efficient use of the structure, and its inevitable impact on the wellbeing and safety of Sefton’s children and young
people, by understanding reporting requirements but exercising professional judgement in terms of the structure’s flexibility. For
example, members of ECM subgroups may want to work together on a task and finish group to deliver a particular outcome; advice
can be sought from any group by another on the most appropriate action to be taken – including any commissioning issues.
Governance provides leadership but should not inhibit flexibility.
