Nottingham Children's Partnership
The Nottingham Children's Partnership is one of the One Nottingham Theme Partnerships.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The Children's Partnership Board has been established to drive forward a robust collective response to improving the lives of children, young people and families in Nottingham City.
The Nottingham City Children & Young People's Plan 2010-2014 (CYPP), sets out the priorities to be addressed by the Children's Partnership Board, as agreed by the City Council and its partners. These priorities form the basis of the difference we are trying to make for children and young people in Nottingham City. This difference, a common vision and an agreed work programme will be the shared goal and work of the Board.
All partners are accountable for the delivery of a wide range of services to children and young people in Nottingham City. Some of these can be delivered better where we work together.
The Children's Partnership Board is the vehicle for that joint working. It is not a stand alone employer. It is a partnership vehicle from which different agencies achieve agreed outcomes towards:
- the delivery of their core service
- greater efficiencies and economies of scale
- more accurate information
- targeting of appropriate resource
- access to specialist skills
The result will deliver a more comprehensive and effective service.
One of the ways we are working towards this vision is through our Priority Families Programme. This targets Partnership help and support to those families who need it most. Priority Families focuses on the whole family and unites the skills and expertise of all our frontline partners.
