Children and Young People's Plan

Our 2015-2018 Children and Young People's Plan (CYPP) is the result of learning and consultation with all Children’s Trust Board members. During 2014 the Board reviewed data from the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment, data from the last CYPP and the priorities from key strategies and plans from partner organisations. This process enabled us to agree the following priorities up until 2018.

Children’s Trust Priorities
Priority 1 - Having the best start in life and throughout
  • Ensure that children and young people are empowered and informed to make positive life choices
  • Enable children and young people to build emotional wellbeing and improve health
  • Work to ensure that those using our services have as positive an experience as possible and are able to influence future service delivery
  • All young people have access to an equitable universal offer across the area.
Priority 2 - Learning and employment
  • All children and young people have a fair and equal chance to achieve, and have access to information to make informed decisions about their future, regardless of heritage, income or disability
Priority 3 - Keeping children safe
  • Protect and safeguard ALL children and young people and in particular those that need our care. This includes protection from others (in particular, domestic abuse, sexual exploitation, on-line abuse and cultural abuse) and protection from harm they may cause themselves (in particular, self harming)

These priorities form the basis of our Children and Young People's Plan 2015-2018 which can be found via a link on the right of this page. Please take a look at the plan and if you have any feedback contact the Partnership Manager (see below).  Previous CYPPs (2009-2012 and 2011-2014) and periodic reviews of those plans, are also available on the right of the page.

The CYPP covers services for all those in Reading aged 0 to 19, young people aged 20 and over leaving care and young people up to the age of 25 with learning difficulties. It is not a detailed operational plan therefore the CYPP will need to be underpinned by local authority and partner plans operating at different levels to accomplish specific goals and to manage delivery on a day to day basis. 

We are aware that we use acronyms and jargon within our documentation. Although we do try to avoid this, it is sometimes necessary. To help make sense of our terminology, we have produced a document that provides definitions for all the acronyms and terms that we use. This can be found to the right of this page.

If you would like any more information relating to any aspect of Reading Children's Trust, please contact the Children's Trust Partnership Manager on 0118 937 3269 or via the link on the right of this page.
