The children and young people’s plan is the single, overarching plan for Wigan’s Children’s Trust and sets out the strategic direction and priorities for improvement. It marks a new era for the partners who are committed to working together to improve outcomes for our children, young people and their families. It builds on what has already been achieved and looks to move the partnership forward by focusing on a selected number of priorities.
The Children’s Trust is responsible for delivering against the Start Well strand of Wigan’s Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy and aims to fulfil this responsibility through its key priorities. The plan outlines three key priorities all of which are important to ensuring that every child in Wigan has the best possible start in life.
- Narrow the gap
- Safeguard, protect and promote the welfare of all vulnerable children and young people
- Develop a whole system approach to early intervention.
