Protecting the Vulnerable; improving well-being

Protecting the Vulnerable

We take the need to protect the vulnerable residents of Central Bedfordshire very seriously, whether providing award winning new accommodation for older people, helping young families with complex needs or supporting local people to enjoy long and healthy lives.

And when it is not possible for children to stay with their families, it is our job to look after them. Whether that means living in foster care or other supported accommodation, we aim to provide them with the same care and life chances that all parents want for their children.
