To consider a report regarding the Families First for Children Pathfinder.


That the approach to delivering the Families First for Children Pathfinder, as set out in the report to People and Health Overview Committee of 17 October 2023, be approved.


Reason for the decision


Participation in the Pathfinder programme was a huge opportunity for Dorset to shape the national transformation of children and families strategy and policy and to ensure that Dorset Council was well placed to implement these policy changes when they were rolled out nationally.  Department for Education funding would be made available and would be used to support the required change.
