2024 Policy Committee Meetings

All members of ADCS are eligible to join and contribute to the work of our national policy committees. This is where we consider all aspects of children’s services policy and practice. Our national committees also lead on the development of consultation responses and submissions of evidence to select committee inquiries as well as ADCS policy position papers. Some meetings join up two committees to discuss shared areas of interest. Additional ad-hoc meetings may be arranged to consider evolving issues.

Meetings primarily take place online and are 1.5 – 2 hours. In 2024 we plan to have at least one face-to-face meeting involving each policy committee.

We’re particularly keen to diversify regional representation on our national groups so that our engagements with government, and others, accurately reflect the state of play in local areas as they develop new policies and guidance, for example.
