Agenda Items Required for Staffordshire Families Strategic Partnership Board

The next meeting of the recently formed Staffordshire Families Strategic Partnership Board is due towards the end of April and a request has been made for agenda items.

For those of you not familiar with the partnership it is a multi–agency group that reports into the Health & Wellbeing Board. Its focus is on families rather than simply children and young people in recognition of the integral link between the two.

A paper that was presented to the Health & Wellbeing Board in March is attached which gives a full explanation of the remit of the Board.
