The Children and Young People Select Committee looks at issues relating to children and young people, principally:
· schools and related services (including early years, alternative provision, post-16)
· children’s social services
· Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision for children and young people up to age 25
· youth services
· transition for care leavers.
The Committee holds decision-makers to account, challenges budgetary and policy decisions and influences policy-making by making recommendations.
The Committee chooses the issues it wants to focus on each year and holds five public meetings. The agenda and papers for each are published online in advance.
