We know that sometimes children, young people and their families need extra help and support. That’s why we’re here.
Why we are here, who we are and how we’re helping children to stay safe and well, and reach their full potential.
We provide social care and support services to children, young people and families in Doncaster.
We were set up in October 2014 as an innovative way to provide these services following an agreement with national government and the local authority, and we're the first of our kind in the country.
We have a very clear focus. We believe that every child and young person in the borough deserves the best start in life and support when they need it to reach their full potential. We will support all children and young people who need help in the borough, at times of need or crisis in their lives.
At the heart of our business is a team of young people who have experience of care, our Young Advisors. They advise the Chief Executive on how to run the Trust and how services can be improved for other children and young people.
Driving all this work forward is a team of some 500 staff at the Trust, led by the Chief Executive and a board of local and professional people with expertise in social care and safeguarding within and outside of the borough.
