Children and Young People's Plan 2011 - 2012
An updated plan to improve the health, safety and well-being of looked after children across the county is now available for you to view.
The plan is put together by the Northamptonshires Children and Young Peoples Partnership (CYPP) which is made up of a wide range of organisations, including councils, schools, health organisations, police and voluntary sector agencies all working together to improve outcomes for children and young people in the county.
The partnership has produced a plan which sets out what it collectively wants to achieve for children and young people in the coming years, building on the progress already made.
The plan was developed in consultation with partners, the Children and Young Peoples Shadow Board and with input from online public consultation. The six key priorities in the plan are based on local needs and what parents, professionals and young people say:
- Improving learner engagement, attainment, achievement and progress for all children and young people
- Ensuring children and young people are safe from harm
- Keeping children and young people safe from being either the victims of crime or becoming offenders
- Reducing inequalities in health experience and outcomes for children and young people
- Improving outcomes for children who are looked after
- Develop initiatives to decrease the impact of poverty on families and young people
Jan Norman, Chair of the Children and Young Peoples Partnership Board and Director of Nursing for the Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire Cluster PCTs, said: "We want to ensure that children and young people in Northamptonshire are healthy, safe and are helped to achieve their potential, so that they can make a positive contribution to the community and live happy, fulfilled lives".
The plan is available to download from the Children and Young Peoples Partnership website.
