The Children & Young People’s Plan is a three year strategic plan which aims to address the priority areas and meet the needs of all children and young people in Flintshire.

The Plan takes account of every aspect of their lives from pre-natal to 25 years. It also includes parenting and family issues. These issues need to be addressed through agencies and services working together no one agency or service can address the priority areas on their own.

The multi-agency Children & Young People’s Partnership (CYPP) is leading on the implementation of the Plan.

As the 2008-11 plan is coming to an end, a new Plan is being developed for 2011-14. The draft Plan has been developed with contributions from children, young people and families and many of the services and organisations that work with them.

A new set of proposed outcomes has been identified through this work, and we would like to know what you think of them, and how we can work together to make them a reality.


All of the information gathered will be considered when developing the new Children & Young People’s Plan 2011-14.
