Cumbria County Council’s Information & Performance Team in Children’s Services are here to ensure that our colleagues and partners are supported to do their jobs as effectively as possible so that together we all improve outcomes for children, young people and their families in Cumbria. In addition, we also support the users of our services – for example, through delivering the Directorate’s complaints and compliments functions.
The work of the team covers a wide range of functions including the following:
We provide data and information on a wide variety of topics to do with children and young people. A great deal of this information is available to the public through the Cumbria Intelligence Observatory (see link below), which provides an extensive resource bringing together existing research and analysis across Cumbria.
We are also responsible for supporting the development of a number of key plans and policies for the Directorate so that everyone is clear about what is important to us and how we are making a real difference. Cumbria Children’s Services Directorate Plan 2012-13 is our key strategic document which sets our priorities over the coming year and the activity we be will undertaking to deliver these priorities.
Plans and policies relevant to Safeguarding can be accessed via the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) website:
