What is Children, Schools and Families?
Cornwall’s Children, Schools and Families (formerly known as Children, Young People and Family Services) were formed in August 2005 as a Department for Cornwall County Council. The new Department was created with the split of Children’s Services and Adult Social Work under the old Social Services Department and the merger with Education.
The Director of Children, School and Families is Trevor Doughty who is based in New County Hall, Truro, TR1 3AY, telephone: 0300 1234 101. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
What Services are available to Children and Young People?
Services are available to help children and young people with physical or learning disabilities, or sight/hearing loss, and vulnerable children and families.
The Department also has a special duty to protect children and young people from neglect and abuse.
