Committee details

Community and Wellbeing Scrutiny Committee

Purpose of committee

Scrutiny is the mechanism by which the Cabinet is held publicly to account.  The scrutiny function has the capacity to give non-Cabinet Members a significant opportunity to influence the proposals of the Cabinet and to probe into the impact of policy decisions on the Borough.


This is one of two scrutiny committees established by the Council.  This committee covers adult social care, public health and the statutory responsibility for scrutiny of local health services.  It also scrutinises services for the children and young people, partnership work undertaken by the Children’s Trust and safeguarding arrangements.


Related Committees: the Resources and Public Realm Scrutiny Committee, Housing Scrutiny Committee (decommissioned May 2019).
