Children's Trust

About Us


Poole Children’s Trust works together through the Poole Children’s Trust Board which has regular meetings and monitors progress against the actions set out in our plan.


The Children’s Trust Board works closely with children, young people and their carers.


The partner organisations of the Children’s Trust are:

  • Poole Schools Association
  • Dorset NHS Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Dorset Healthcare University Foundation NHS Trust
  • Poole Hospital NHS Trust
  • Poole Voluntary and Community Sector
  • Borough of Poole People Services
  • Elected Members of Poole Council
  • Dorset Police
  • Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner
  • Young People


Bournemouth and Poole Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) is the key statutory mechanism for agreeing and ensuring that local organisations within Bournemouth and Poole work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people effectively.


The LSCB can challenge the Children’s Trust about areas where safeguarding is not effective.
