Our Vision is:“We want all our children to live, grow, achieve and exceed in their hopes for the future”Plymouth Children and Young People’s Plan 2006

Targeted Provision

Universal Provision

Type of Provision

“We want everyone to work together to make things better for children”Plymouth Children and Young People’s Plan Children’s Version 2008

Why?We believe that this will be the most responsive, effective and efficient way of delivering targeted services from the statutory and voluntary sectors to children, young people and their families to improve outcomes because we can:

  • Intervene and support early

  • Be closer to where people live

  • Support universal services

  • Respond to diverse community needs

  • Engage community in planning services

  • Gain collaborative advantage from professionals working together

"We want services for families to be more easily accessible/closer to where they live. From a parents perspective what would help us to achieve that?"
