Children and Young People’s Service Planning
‘We want to ensure that each child in East Ayrshire, including those who are not yet born have the best start in life. Therefore our commitment to children and young people, their families and carers is to provide them with the support they need, when and where they need it in order to help them achieve their aspirations and potential.’
The Community Planning Partnership Board has delegated responsibility for strategic Children Service Planning in East Ayrshire. This activity is led by our Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership, which includes representatives from East Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership; East Ayrshire Council; NHS Ayrshire and Arran; East Ayrshire Council for Voluntary Organisations (CVO); Fire Scotland; Police Scotland; and the Children’s Reporter.
East Ayrshire Children and Young People’s Service Plan 2017-20 is the seventh to be produced for the area and the first under the statutory guidance issued by the Scottish Government on Part 3 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014. It complements and supports the East Ayrshire Community Plan and is in full alignment with the Community Plan delivery plans.
Our Community Planning Guiding Principles of lifelong learning, tackling inequalities and early intervention and prevention are also reflected in the Children and Young People’s Service Plan.
