The Council and Capita have created a joint venture brimming with innovative ideas and practical solutions and, two and a half years on, there are real results and positive feedback from both schools and parents. At a time when school budgets are in the spotlight, Entrust is a ground-breaking move that is making a true difference to children and young people – and delivering long-term economic and financial benefits.
