The Croydon Children and Families Partnership is responsible for setting the overarching vision and strategy for children, young people and families in the borough, working with stakeholders from the public, private and third sector to improve the physical, mental, emotional, social and economic well-being of children, young people and families living in Croydon.

It aims to enable all children and young people in Croydon to be aspirational in their achievement of the 5 Every Child Matters outcomes: 

Be healthy; Stay safe; Enjoy and achieve; Make a positive contribution; and Achieve economic well-being.

The Children and Families Partnership Board is not a decision-making body but recommends for approval to statutory authorities any jointly agreed plans or strategies relating to children and young people; taking into account national policies, existing local service provision and likely available resources.

"I have worked in children and young people's mental health services in Croydon for almost 30 years so I have a strong background and understanding of the issues relevant to these Boards. I am also experienced at representing the VCS on these boards and have a strong commitment to ensuring our voices and perspectives (and those of the children, young people and families with whom we work) are kept to the forefront in strategic discussions and decisions."

"I have been working with mums within the Croydon area - especially the Broad Green area - for the past 4 years, providing various projects which are free for all young mums. Our Main project, Foodie Friday, helps mums with healthy eating and a weekly shop, a Young Mums Netball club and mentoring, advice and support. Our main aim is to provide all mums with a place to go without the need for referrals."

"I am a community woman at heart with a passion and drive to promote social action, empowering and supporting individuals and organisations to inform and influence society. I am interested in representing the VCS on this board as I believe Children and families play a crucial role in contributing both to decisions that affect their own lives as well as their communities and wider society. At Croydon Vision, an organisation that supports people with sight loss we work with children who are either totally blind or have severe sight loss and many have additional physical and or learning disabilities. Our aim is to create a society that is inclusive of blind and partially sighted people's interests and needs. I have experience of working with children and families with complex needs and challenges - including domestic abuse, social issues, child poverty and mental health issues – ranging from intensive family support, conflict management and relationship support. My aim is to bring in a fresh perspective to the board, to further create environments in which children can make a significant contribution to their own and others’ lives – building stronger families and communities."
