Integrated Children's Services Plan 2011 - 2015

Welcome to For Aberdeen's Children 2011-15. The plan sets out our vision and priorities for children and young people's
services over the next four years.

The plan has been developed by the Integrated Children's Service Partnership which represents all the key public and third
sector agencies that deliver services for children and young people in the city.

As a partnership we are committed to improving outcomes for children, young people and their families and closing the gap
between children in need and their peers. In order to reduce that gap we will focus on improving outcomes for children in the
early years, children who are looked after, have additional support needs, disabilities, or social emotional and behaviour needs and those young people not in employment, education or training.

We are committed to protecting the quality of services to children and young people despite the pressures on resources.
We recognise the crucial role of parents, carers, families and volunteers in improving outcomes for children and young people and the need to support them to do so. We also recognise that all children and young people need to have a sense of belonging and all communities must value the positive contribution young people can make to their localities.

Our Vision

We are working towards the day when every child and young person in Aberdeen enjoys being young and at the same time feels safe, nurtured, healthy, active, included, respected and responsible. We will do this by coming together as workers, parents and carers to make sure every child and young person achieves their full potential and is supported to participate in decisions that affect them.

Our Mission

We will promote and deliver integrated services of the highest quality that are accessible to all. We are committed to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and will promote the rights and responsibilities of all those who use services for children. Our aim is to 'Get It Right for Every Child' and in so doing improve the outcomes for all children and young people in the city by raising achievement and attainment and reduce inequality by ensuring a common, co-ordinated approach across all agencies that supports the delivery of appropriate, proportionate and timely help to all children as they need it.

We hope that you find this plan both interesting and informative. Download a copy of the reports from the links below:
