Local Collaborative Partnerships - the model

?Most children & young people in Wiltshire are in good health, achieve well and make a positive contribution. But we want them to do even better.? (Wiltshire Children and Young People?s Plan 2008-11)

What are Local Collaborative Partnerships for?

Local Collaborative Partnerships are the local element of the Wiltshire Children & Young People?s Trust. Their purpose is to help improve outcomes for children & young people, in particular those with additional needs at level 2 . Their success will be measured by their contribution to good outcomes for children & young people locally.

Who are the partners?

All who deliver services for children & young people in the locality are partners - children?s centres, early years settings, early years & childcare team, community health services (health visitors and school nurses), schools (both primary and secondary), local targeted services (see below), school improvement services, social care, police and other statutory and voluntary organisations ? and also children & young people themselves.

How will they work?

? collate information about local services and improve how services work together
? jointly commission/re-shape some local services
? monitor arrangements for responding to the needs of individual vulnerable children & young people (through ?Team around the child? meetings - see next).
