High ideals

Due to an incident that I am not going to detail just yet, I was carrying out some research and landed here

I would be interested in hearing from other people who think this is mighty fine window dressing but does not actually bear any relevance to reality in Walsall, in the hope that maybe we can put something together before making more formal approaches to the relevant authorities.

For those not wishing to click the link, the page is from Walsall Council's website regarding children and young people and it says:

Our Vision

We believe that all Children and Young People in Walsall have the right to be healthy, happy and safe, to be loved, valued and respected and to have high aspirations for a successful future.


We respect all children, young people and their families – by listening carefully to their views and acting on them wherever possible.

We are open and trustworthy – by making decisions transparently and involving others and we do what we say we will.

We believe in the potential of all children – by doing all we can to support their development and talents.

We are caring and responsible – by acting as good corporate parents and going the ‘extra mile’ in our supportive approaches to all children.

We will protect vulnerable children and young people – by taking firm urgent action when needed, sharing information and not tolerating oppressive behaviour.

We engage with children and young people, helping to empower them through supporting their aspirationsand giving them responsibility.

We celebrate and support cultural diversity and children’s sense of identity.

  1. It's just more dross on the same lines as this:
    www.walsallpartnership.org.uk...the partnership is the replacement for the borough strategic partnership and is a local strategic partnership; this is a new approach (called Area Partnerships)and it replaces the local neighbourhood partnerships. Got that? Good
