Are the Council Interested in Youngs Dads?

Standard

On the 19 January 2013 this email was sent to Sharon Simpson, Head of Commissioning and Resource Allocation for Bedford Borough Children’s Trust, in an attempt to raise the importance of young fathers.

This follows a report by the Family Strategic Partnership funded by the Dept of Education recommending “Every local authority should appoint a lead professional for young fathers”

Dear Sharon Simpson,

I hope you are well.

Given the changes to the Bedford Borough Council Children’s Trust and the Family Strategic Partnership report funded by the Dept of Education recommending “Every local authority should appoint a lead professional for young fathers”, [http://www.familystrategicpartner.org/young-fathers-report/] would you please provide details on the new mechanism for having the report considered by the Trust as a priority please.

I look forward to your reply.

As of 14 March 2013 no response had been received.

UPDATE:

The following was sent to the Mayor on 15 March 2013

I’m trying to establish who is the council’s lead person on Young Dad’s.

I assume Sharon Simpson has been made redundant, hence my email to you.

A reply was received on 18 March 2013

Thank you for your email.

I will investigate who you need to contact and inform you as soon as possible.

Kind regards

Sue

Sue Brigginshaw

Despite further exchanges as of date of posting still no details as to who is the lead person for young fathers have been received.
