Children and Young People’s Board

The purpose of this Board is to bring partners together to work collaboratively to improve inclusion and equality in the city and its schools, to support parents and guardians to care for their children within their family, to give every child the best start in life and to offer our young people a voice in the future of Bristol.  It will champion, initiate and drive projects to help make Bristol a fair, inclusive and child friendly city that leaves nobody behind.
