C.Co was commissioned to support the establishment of Worcestershire County Council’s Children’s Trust. C.Co was part of a broader team brought in to navigate the legal, compliance and procurement complexities of establishing a new legal entity, specifically in this instance a Trust.

Our approach

C.Co was able to share learning of previous similar exercises undertaken with Doncaster Children’s Trust and Slough Children’s Trust on behalf of the Department for Education. C.Co specifically identified risks around tax and VAT implications of the legal structure change, as well as contracting and legal risks which needed to be actively managed.

The outcome

We actively identified, planned and undertook the necessary activities to ensure contractual compliance with all suppliers and providers.

Worcestershire Children’s Trust continued its relationship with C.Co post formation and was in scope of broader organisation-wide transformation that C.Co undertook on behalf of the County Council Chief Executive and elected Leader.
