Part 3 of the Children & Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 calls upon specific public bodies (named in the Act) to work together to produce a joint children’s services plan, as opposed to individual organisational plans.
The act places new requirements on public bodies setting out how they should promote, support and safeguard the wellbeing of children and young people. Part 3 provides specific guidance to support Community Planning Partnerships (CPP) to develop their joint plans, including guidance on consultation with children, young people, their families and key stakeholders across the CPP area.
Fife Children Service Plan 2017-20 has been developed through extensive stakeholder consultation and includes the views of children and young people. It maps out 16 priority areas the local CPP will focus on over the next three years and how the partnership intends to monitor and evidence its progress against each one.
