On 1 April 2018, the city’s children’s services moved to the Birmingham Children’s Trust. The Trust is a wholly-owned company of Birmingham City Council, but will remain operationally independent. The trust and the council will continue to work together as part of the ongoing improvement of children’s services.

The latest report from Ofsted says Birmingham City Council is maintaining progress already made with ‘further improvement evident in specific areas' in children’s services.

Birmingham Connect to Support is the city’s new adult social care website and the place to go to find out about events, products and services in local areas and citywide.
