Cheshire West and Chester Children's Trust recognise the importance of working together in an equal partnership, by working in this way we aim to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and families in our area. 

The co-production strategy gives us all a clear understanding of what co-production actually means.  We expect professionals to evaluate their services using the self-evaluation tool and to complete when beginning any new projects.

We will be looking to monitor, review and share good practice and address poor practice via the Special Educational Needs and Disability Strategy Group.  The Special Educational Needs and Disability Strategy Group consists of representatives from Education, Social Care, Health, Parent Carer Forum, Commissioners and other Local Authority partners.
