The role of corporate parenting places a collective responsibility on all local authorities to achieve good parenting for all children and young people in care. It requires ownership and leadership at a senior level and includes all elected members. See the corporate parenting page for details of what North Yorkshire County Council is doing to meet its corporate parenting responsibilities.
