Geographical remit: 


We provide social care and support services to children, young people and families in Doncaster.

We were set up in October 2014 as an innovative way to provide these services following an agreement with national government and the local authority, and we're the first of our kind in the country.

We have a very clear focus. We believe that every child and young person in the borough deserves the best start in life and support when they need it to reach their full potential. We will support all children and young people who need help in the borough, at times of need or crisis in their lives.

At the heart of our business is a team of young people who have experience of care, our Young Advisors. They advise the Chief Executive on how to run the Trust and how services can be improved for other children and young people.

Driving all this work forward is a team of some 500 staff at the Trust, led by the Chief Executive and a board of local and professional people with expertise in social care and safeguarding within and outside of the borough.


How we work with you and help children and young people to stay safe and well, and reach their full potential. 

We support families who need a bit of extra help to give their children a good start in life. Some children and young people are at risk of being harmed, or are not being properly looked after. We work with families to keep their children safe. Sometimes we need to arrange for children to live with other carers for a while.
