Welcome to Poole Children's Trust

Poole Children's Trust provides strategic leadership and direction to all partner agencies which support children, young people and their families locally.

This website provides information about supporting children and young people to achieve their full potential.

Poole Children's Trust partners are commited to achieving real change and improvements in the lives of children, young people and their families in Poole. We consult with children, young people, parents, carers and partners. It is important to the trust to have feedback and this is used to help prioritise our work.


We have a new Plan for Children and Young People and their Families. The Plan sets out how all the Children's Trust partners will work together to give children and young people and their families support, to have better lives.

Poole now has a Child Poverty Strategy which aims to reduce the impact of poverty on children and young people.

The Children's Trust Shadow Board   is a group of young people who identify issues that are important to young people and work with the adults on the Children's Trust Board to resolve them.
