Northern Outcomes Group
The CYPSP has mandated the Northern Outcomes Group to implement outcomes based planning for the Northern Trust area. Outcomes based planning is the gathering statistical information and information from communities in order to understand how well children and young people are doing in terms of certain outcomes, and then putting into place services designed to improve these outcomes. The membership of the Northern Outcomes Group reflects that of the CYPSP with representation from the statutory agencies and the voluntary and community sector. The Northern Outcomes Group will enable the improvement of support and services for children and young people in ways that have not been possible up to now. We will build on achievements to date to make services better for children and young people.
The role of the Northern Outcomes Groups is to provide a local focus for tracking of indicators consistent with the 6 high level outcomes, relating to the well-being and the realization of rights. The group mobilizes local resources from the statutory, voluntary and community sectors aiming to improve outcomes for children and young people through integrated planning and commissioning.
