Portsmouth CC Corporate Parenting Team - "Talking about Corporate Parenting" CPD Resource

Portsmouth City Council's Corporate Parenting Team is responsible for looking after over 250 young people in care. The need to provide consistent and appropriate care and support for both the young people and their carers is complex and demands a coherent multi-agency approach.

Clarity Learning has worked closely with the Corporate Parent Team to develop a "Talking about Corporate Parenting" CPD resource. Aimed at all members of the City Council the DVD video resource presents an opportunity for everyone to better understand the needs of young people and their carers.

The resource meant working closely with over 20 young people to record their stories and opinions, providing for an intimate and powerful testimony of what it is like living in the care system.

"The need to work with and record the thoughts of young people in care was paramount. Clarity Learning's approach and experience enabled the young people to speak openly and with confidence, resulting in a very powerful piece."
Louise Davies, Corporate Parenting Officer, Portsmouth City Council
