The Children and Young People's Plan

The Children's Trust Board has published the new Children and Young People's Plan 2017-2020.  The plan was shaped by children and young people and their families, all of whom have an important stake in its success.

The plan sets out the vision of working together to achieve high quality outcome for children and families through the provision of sustainable support and services.  This includes the offer of early help and intervention through Family Hubs in local communities, the Strengthening Families Programme, Education and special educational needs and disability services support for children, families and schools.

It focuses on five key priority areas:

  1. Securing children and young people's emotional, mental and physical health.
  2. Helping children and young people to be safe and feel safe.
  3. Improving education to provide all children and young people with outstanding learning opportunities.
  4. Inspiring and providing equal opportunities for all children and young people to achieve their goals and dreams.
  5. Addressing the incidence and reducing the impact of poverty on the achievement and life chances of children and young people.
