The Rotherham Charter has been developed in equal partnership by Rotherham Local Authority and Rotherham Parents Forum Ltd. It involves schools, colleges, settings and services demonstrating real commitment to the four principles. The aim is that embarking on a Charter journey will strengthen partnerships with young people, parents and carers by nurturing confidence and trust.
A wide range of tools, positive activities, training and appreciative support packages have been devised by the team to help organisations genuinely embed the principles into their ethos and processes. We would encourage those wishing to celebrate their excellent practice to pursue Charter Gold Accreditation.
The Charter team is friendly and diverse, made up of parents, carers, practitioners and young people working together in co-production. A tiered model of support has been developed to suit the individual needs of your school, college, setting or service.
We also offer an Introductory Course for parents, carers, young people and practitioners interested in knowing more about joining the team, and an Accredited Course for individuals who would like to join us as a trainer, researcher or team lead.
