Corporate parents – ‘our wider community’
This role is known as Corporate parenting; where others take on the role of a parent to our children and young people in care and care leavers. The wider community is out of Solihull council. They consist of a wide range of businesses, services and large companies that have all helped in many different ways. Our wider community parents have played a massive part in supporting OVOS.
Thank you to all our wider family who have helped support us, we really do appreciate it.
