Western Outcomes Group

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

Progress to date

Members of the Western Outcomes Group examined the range of their responsibilities from monitoring outcomes, connections with other CYPSP groups, how local organisations can work together to better plan for children and young people. A key area for attention was how they can improve communication with Locality Planning Groups, local communities, parents and children and young people.
