Belfast Outcomes Group

The CYPSP has mandated the Belfast Outcomes Group to implement outcomes based planning for the Belfast 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 Belfast Outcomes Group reflects that of the CYPSP with representation from the statutory agencies and the voluntary and community sector. The Belfast 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.

Progress to date

Belfast Outcomes Group has membership from across the Statutory, Voluntary and Community and BME sectors working in the Belfast and Castlereagh areas. Over recent months the Belfast Outcomes Group has overseen a number of events:

CYPSP Locality Planning – Belfast Outcomes Group Community Representatives working in conjunction with the Belfast Area Partnerships have been facilitating the development of outcomes based planning at locality level across the area. West Belfast LPG held their first meeting on 20 February 2013 and are now meeting monthly. South Belfast became the 25th CYPSP LPG on 16 April and will meet again on 20 June 2013. North Belfast will hold their first meeting on 4June 2013 and discussions are ongoing in the East of the City.

The role of the Belfast 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.
