Is there a Children & Young People's Strategic Plan?

In December 2013, the East Riding Children’s Trust approved the East Riding Children and Young People's Plan for 2013 - 2016.

East Riding Children and Young People’s Plan for 2013 – 2016 (pdf 903kb opens in new window)

The Plan outlines our overarching ambition and priorities for children and young people in the area, an ambition that is centred on the feedback which we received from extensive engagement and consultation with children and young people in the development of the Plan. The voice of all our young children and young people runs through this Plan and their ambitions are woven into our ten priorities.

Our priorities address the most significant challenges we face in delivering improvements in all our services in the East Riding. They are all aligned to the core themes that underpin our ambition. This means that our children and young people should:

  • live in a safe and supportive environment
  • benefit from all learning opportunities available to them
  • maximise their full potential
  • become confident and independent individuals
  • have access to the best possible services
  • respect and be respected by their peers and adults
  • make a positive contribution to their communities
  • choose healthy and positive lifestyles
  • have access to quality advice and guidance to support their personal development
  • be able to influence the development of services provided for them

What other strategies support outcomes for children and young people?

There is a range of plans and strategies that support the delivery of the Children & Young People's Strategic Plan. The most important ones are held on the Children and Young People Strategy Page.

Appendix 4 of the plan also shows the current status of those in development, and dates when they will be finalised.
