Children and Young People’s Partnership Board

Children and Young People’s Partnership Board's (CYPPB) logo.

Slough Children and Young People’s Partnership Board (CYPPB) is a strategic partnership of statutory and non-statutory agencies and services that provide services for children, young people and families. The CYPPB oversees the planning and commissioning of services. It enables partners to work together to identify and meet areas of specific need to improve the outcomes for children and young people and enhance their life chances.

Slough’s Children and Young People’s Plan (CYP Plan) sets strategic partnership priorities and objectives for partners to work together to deliver. The Board has also developed:

The CYPPB supports the duty placed on Slough Borough Council and its partners to cooperate under Section 10 of the Children Act 2004. It also fulfils the requirements of a Children’s Trust Board as amended by the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act (2009). It is not a separate organisation, but a partnership where each partner retains its own functions and accountability, and has equal status.

The CYPPB is constituted as a Priority Delivery Group of the Slough Wellbeing Board, which delivers the statutory functions placed on Health and Wellbeing Boards under the Health and Social Care Act (2012).

The Children and Young People’s Partnership Executive is a core group of the full CYPPB that meets more frequently than the full Board. The CYP Executive:

  • sets the agenda for quarterly meetings of the CYPPB
  • reviews reports in advance of Board meetings
  • follows-up on reports and actions following these meetings
  • makes decisions and takes action on matters that arise between quarterly CYPPB meetings, where a decision by the full board is either not required or is needed quickly.
