All children and young people in Cornwall are safe and healthy, having equal opportunities to achieve brighter futures.


Our mission is to deliver a service that we and those we serve can be proud of, which promotes positive outcomes for all children and enables them to be healthy, safe and thrive in their learning.


Our statement of vision, mission and values has been developed through engagement with staff, partners, residents and clients. These values are at the centre of our priorities, approach and professional practice:

  • Our first consideration is the lived experience of the child, putting the voice of children and young people into our practice
  • We will put the needs of children first and will act with integrity, honesty, empathy and respect, showing fairness and courage in everything we do
  • We will have a whole family approach, listening to the views and wishes of parents and carers and the child’s wider family
  • We will have open communication and will show respect for the opinions of others
  • We will do all we can to promote, protect and improve the health of children
  • We will strive to improve how we support children and families, delivering the services they need
  • Our priority is to identify additional needs early and provide help at the right time to prevent the needs and risks of children and families getting worse
  • Children who are disadvantaged and those with additional needs will receive extra help to improve their outcomes
  • If children and families do need extra help, they or their trusted professional will be able to access this help quickly and easily
  • We will be open to challenge. We will respond to well-founded criticism with a willingness to learn and to change
  • We are committed to working together, with children, young people and their families and with partners to achieve our vision
