‘Joining the Work to make the difference…
Joining the Information to measure the difference…’
The CYPSP will work together to carry out integrated planning to put in place those supports and services to improve outcomes for children and young people that can’t be put in place by agencies acting separately.
We … and our planning groups are all using the same method of planning to improve outcomes, which is set out in the Framework for Integrated Planning for Outcomes for Children and Young People (2008).
This framework was developed by the Outcomes for Children Project which is funded by the European Union Interreg IVA to promote and implement inter-agency and cross border outcomes based planning in the Co-operation and Working Together (CAWT) border region.
The project has facilitated the set-up of four locality planning partnerships in the border region. This project is also supporting some of the integrated planning within Northern Ireland which is feeding into the CYPSP overall process. It also helps us link with similar planning processes in the Republic of Ireland.
Integrated Outcomes Based Planning
All of the CYPSP planning groups are using this model for integrated planning.
In addition, a model of best practice on the use of information as part of this model has also been drawn up.
Northern Ireland Children and Young People’s Plan 2011-2014
The Northern Ireland Children and Young People’s Plan will set out how we will work together to planning and put in place those supports and services to improve outcomes for children and young people that can’t be put in place by agencies acting separately. The Plan will take each of the Outcomes and link them to indicators and qualitative information – ways in which we will know how well all children and young people are achieving the outcomes, and to actions that need to be taken to ensure improvements in these outcomes.
This has been out for consultation and we are analysing the consultation responses at the moment. Once the NI Children and Young People’s Plan 2011-2014 has been finalised it will set out how we will take our work forward.
